John Marshall Law School’s 62nd Annual IP Conference

November 2, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 8:00 pm EDT

The John Marshall Law School is proud to present its 62nd Annual Intellectual Property Law Conference. This one-day conference covers developments in patent, trade secrets, antitrust, trademarks, copyrights, IP management and in-house counsel practice, entertainment, and information technology and privacy law.

Last year, we expanded the scope of our long-standing IP event, moving from principally single-speaker sessions to panels, with plenty of time for discussions and questions from the audience. As part of this new format, we expanded our faculty to include a greater mix of expert speakers and thought leaders from government, the judiciary, corporations, NGOs, academia and, of course, practitioners. This has allowed us to add participants from across the country, while still drawing extensively from our local talent.

John Marshall’s Annual Intellectual Property Law Conference has always been a way for the practicing bar, students, and academics to discuss and stay on top of this ever-changing field of law. A mainstay in IP CLE programming, the conference features judicial, administrative, practitioner, and academic presenters from around the country who share their insights into the most important IP developments and their future impact.

We look forward to you joining us.

For more information, or to Register, please visit the 62nd ANNUAL INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW CONFERENCE Webpage.
