R. Bruce Rich to Present Thirty-First Horace S. Manges Lecture at Columbia Law School

On March 26, 2018, R. Bruce Rich, partner and Co-Head of Weil’s Intellectual Property & Media practice, will give the Thirty-First Horace S. Manges Lecture at Columbia Law School’s Kernochan Center for Law, Media and the Arts. Mr. Rich, who will be the first private practitioner to give the prestigious Manges Lecture since its establishment, will present on “The ‘Art’ of Copyright: A Practitioner’s Perspective.”

The Horace S. Manges Lecture and Conference Fund was established by Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP in 1986 in honor of one of the Firm’s founding partners, who graduated from Columbia Law School in 1919. Mr. Manges was a distinguished trial lawyer and served as counsel to leading writers, publishers, and prominent industry trade groups such as the American Book Publishers Council, now known as the Association of American Publishers, which remains a longtime client of the Firm.

Mr. Rich has led the Firm’s Intellectual Property and Media practice for more than 25 years, during which time he has established a national reputation as a leader in the field of copyright law. He also focuses on trademark, antitrust, and the First Amendment.
