Family Law Reform in Pakistan: Recent Opinions Favoring Women-Initiated Divorce

A Lunchtime Talk with Mubasher Hussain, ILSP: SHARIAsource Visiting Fellow, Fulbright Scholar

Lunch will be provided – please RSVP

Dr. Hussain will discuss Islamic law’s guidelines for the dissolution of marriage, particularly the khul-divorcewhich, under conventional Sunni interpretation, allows a wife to dissolve the marriage only if her husband consents. In his research of Textualist Scholars in the Indian Subcontinent, Dr. Hussain explores an alternative interpretation, which permits a wife to dissolve the marriage without her husband’s consent. This talk will explore arguments that justify the scholar-jurists’ view, based on recent leading opinions from their circles.

Sponsored by SHARIAsource at Harvard Law School

Mon, September 16, 2013 from 12:00pm - 01:30pm  /  Harvard Law School

“Compulsory License and Access to Medicines: The Indian Experience to Date”

Global Health Seminar 

V LakshmikumaranFounder and Managing Partner, Advocate and Patent Agent, Lakshmikumaran & Sridharan Attorneys

Mr. Lakshmikumaran’s talk will focus on India’s compulsory licensing regime, which can be used to mandate that an IP holder license its IP right to another company or individual for a fee. In 2012, India’s government first exercised its power to issue a compulsory license, allowing a generic pharmaceutical company, Natco, to manufacture a version of the cancer-fighting drug, Nexavar, developed by Bayer, after finding, among others, the branded drug to be cost-prohibitive for India. This action is being closely watched worldwide because of the important role played by Indian companies in supplying affordable generic versions of medicines globally. In March 2013, the Indian Patent Appeals Body rejected an appeal from Bayer; the case is now before the High Court of Bombay. If upheld, the development of this regime may be a game changer for global health, opening the way for other Indian generic pharmaceutical companies to seek compulsory licenses to manufacture cheaper version of essential drugs. In fact, further applications have already been filed against Bristol-Meyers Squibb and Roche for other cancer-fighting drugs. Mr. Lakshmikumaran will discuss recent global trends in compulsory licensing, examine the Indian legal framework, and discuss the lessons of the Nexavar dispute. He will also explore the compatibility of India’s compulsory licensing regime with the WTO’s TRIPS Agreement.
