Currently Active

The IPLS is a student-run organization dedicated to fostering interest in, and lively discussion about, the practice of IP law. To that end, the IPLS sponsors various presentations throughout the school year highlighting opportunities and current events in IP law. The IPLS also strives to leverage the Law School's prime location by inviting local practitioners to interface with students and share their experiences practicing IP law in one of the country's largest and most active legal markets.
