IP Institute Sponsorship Opportunities

About the IP Institute

The Intellectual Property (“IP”) Law Section of the California Lawyers Association will host its 44th Annual IP Institute November 14-16, 2019, at the Wynn Las Vegas in Nevada. One of the nation’s premier IP conferences, offering access to top industry leaders, the IP Institute covers a wide range of cutting-edge and compelling topics of intellectual property law, and features our popular IP Vanguard Awards event.

The Institute is attended by members of both large and small leading California IP law firms, in-house legal counsel, members of the judiciary, and academic professionals practicing in the areas of patents, trademarks, copyrights, litigation, trade secrets, international law, licensing, entertainment and sports law, technology law, social media, and privacy. The expected turnout for this year’s event is 200-250 attendees.

About Us

The IP Law Section of the California Lawyers Association was originally organized as part of the State Bar of California in 1976 to further the knowledge of IP law and provide members with timely and informative seminars, conferences, networking opportunities, industry news, practice guides, and publications. Topics covered include the law of patents, trademarks, trade secrets, trade dress, copyrights, licensing, technology, privacy law, unfair business practices, antitrust, legislation, and litigation practice as it relates to intellectual property.

  • A bi-monthly electronic newsletter (Inevitable Disclosures)
  • Individual e-blasts announcing conferences and webinars
  • A printed quarterly journal (New Matter)
