Biography

Luis joined the School of Law as a Lecturer in Intellectual Property Law in September 2019, having previously been a Departmental Lecturer in Intellectual Property Law at the University of Oxford (2018-2019). He also convenes the LLM programme Intellectual Property and the Digital Economy.

Luis was awarded his doctorate by the University of Oxford. His doctoral research, which explores the interplay between the functions theory and scope of protection in European trade mark law, is under contract to be published as a monograph by Cambridge University Press. Luis also holds MJur and MPhil (Distinction) degrees from Oxford, and an LLB (academic achievement scholar) from Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro.

Over the years, Luis has taught across all areas of IP law at Oxford (2015-2019) and at the London School of Economics (2017-2018), having also acted as a Lecturer in the Intellectual Property Postgraduate Program at Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro (2008-2016). He practised law in Brazil as a legal advisor and litigator for several years in the field of intellectual property, notably trade marks, patents, intermediary liability, and unfair competition. More recently, Luis co-authored an amicus brief in a high-profile constitutional challenge before the Brazilian Supreme Court dealing with patent law, TRIPS compliance and industrial policy.

Luis' recent scholarship has appeared in the Intellectual Property Quarterly (UK) and The Trademark Reporter (US).

Research interests

Luis’ research interests primarily lie in the field of intellectual property law, with emphasis on trade marks, patents, and unfair competition.

His current research is concerned with issues relating to the scope of protection across all major fields of IP law. He is particularly interested in the study of the doctrinal mechanisms that courts have devised in response to the expansion of protectable subject matter across intellectual property domains in the recent past.
