City Bar Summer Series
Tuesday, July 31, 2012 6:30 pm-8:30 pm
Intellectual property law protects creations of the human mind and is one of the most dynamic fields in the legal profession. Attorneys practicing in this area counsel clients on establishing and protecting intellectual capital through their work with patents, copyrights, trademarks, licensing, franchising, trade secrets, and other matters. Do you think about being a patent attorney, or one who practices in the art, fashion, sports or technology worlds? If you do, but are not sure how to forge a career path into these areas, this program will be helpful. It will provide an overview of the nature and breadth of intellectual property law practice and will provide strategies for developing a legal career in IP.
