The Rt Hon. Professor Sir Robin Jacob has been variously a leading member of the IP Bar, a High Court judge and, as Lord Justice Jacob, a judge in the Court of Appeal of England and Wales.

His primary area of expertise is intellectual property rights. He chose to leave the Court of Appeal in March 2011 to take up his current position as the Sir Hugh Laddie Chair in intellectual property at University College London. He still sits occasionally in the Court of Appeal and is a door tenant at 8 New Square Lincoln's Inn.

These essays, selected from his published and unpublished writings and lectures, illustrate the breadth of his learning in IP and other matters. They are written in typically straightforward and entertaining style and in the case of the older ones a commentary of what has happened since. They will be of interest to any lawyer, law student, or scholar interested in the development of IP law in the past quarter century.
