More than 150 participants; mainly Business Lawyers, jurists and academics as well as tech entrepreneurs were in attendance in the CBLA ultra-modern and multipurpose conference hall located at Bonanjo, 610 Vallee des Ministres in Douala, Cameroon.

Moderated by Barrister Ousmanou DJOUBAIROU; key Speakers included Dr. Willy ZOGO representing Lexis Nexis, Barristers Esther NGOM, Dudieu DJOMGA and Mr. José FOUDA; all IP specialists who delivered insightful presentations bordering on the Innovations of the 2015 BANGUI Accord as well as salient points involving IP Contract Drafting; Auditing and Litigation. 

It should be noted that this session came after the one held on 15th of July, 2021 on the theme; “On the Business Prospects of Decentralisation in Cameroon”, also graciously financed by CT-AVOCATS.
