Meet a group: Intellectual Property Law

Introduction to Intellectual Property Law

And by “meet the Section on Intellectual Property Law,” we mean that literally.

The section is looking for law student reporters for its 31st annual Intellectual Property Law Conference in Bethesda, Md., from April 6-8. Their program allows law students to interact with and learn from IP practitioners from around the world. And what the reporters do can help them while helping the section — that includes reporting on educational programs and conference events by creating a social media presence at the conference, live-tweeting, posting to Facebook, and publishing pre-conference and post-conference blog posts.

Students selected for the program will have complimentary registration to the conference, including all ticketed events and meals. And the section will work with students on fundraising for lodging and travel for the conference.

The deadline is Jan. 15.

The conference provides more than 30 CLE sessions in IP law over three days — enough credits for an entire year. There’s also networking opportunities and luncheons with guest speakers.

If you’re interested in learning more about the section, connect with its Law Student Action Group via their page or find them on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or Tumblr.

The LSAG also put together a PDF presentation about IP law, what it is, and what career opportunities and internships are available. We’ve embedded it here, but you can also find it on Google Drive.
