Roba Hamam began her intellectual property career in 2006. She holds a Master’s degree in Public Law from Lebanese University Faculty of Law and Political and Administrative Sciences, with a specialisation in Human Rights. To further expand her specialisation into intellectual property law, Roba embarked on and successfully completed an LL.M. in Intellectual Property jointly offered by the University of Turin, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and the International Labour Organization (ILO). She currently heads up the Legal Enforcement Department at Saba & Co. IP Headquarters, while, on the academic front, pursuing a PhD programme on intellectual property in developing countries in the MENA region. Roba is highly enthusiastic about IP in both public- and private-law contexts, not only as a professional in the field but also as a consumer faced with the realities of high levels of counterfeit activities and other kinds of intellectual property infringement and abuse across many sectors of the local and regional economy.
