Welcome to the one annual conference that IP lawyers cannot afford to miss. Now in its 22nd year, the Annual Intellectual Property Law Conference of the ABA Section of Intellectual Property Law provides a gathering of the foremost authorities on the state of intellectual property law.
Recognized for its national and international scope and preeminent programming, the conference attracts over 500 attendees annually.
The past year has been marked by important changes and developments in many aspects of IP law and practice. IP practitioners face new issues, new areas of practice, and increased diversity that includes a growing international component. More demands than ever are placed on their knowledge and skills.
To meet the needs of IP practitioners, this year’s conference contains two and one-half days of programming featuring prominent speakers that include in-house counsel, private practitioners, academics, the federal judiciary and government agency officials. The conference will address recent developments in IP law.
As in past years, the ABA Section of Science & Technology Law joins with the Section of Intellectual Property Law as a co-sponsor of the conference. A special session on Internet law will be presented, coordinated by both sections.
At 8:30 AM on Saturday, April 14, Loeb partner Mary Innis will participate on the Trademark and Copyright Hot Topics portion of the "Out of the Frying Pan…Into the Fire – Sizzling IP Hot Topics" session. This session is described as "a series of debates on hot trademark, copyright and patent issues sunny_parking current discussion in the IP world today."
