About the Event

The ABA-IPL Section and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) are teaming up to host the 7th Annual ABA-IPL Trademark Day on Wednesday, September 18, 2019 at the USPTO headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia. CLE credit will be available for this one-day program, involving two tracks of programming; one track covering topics for new practitioners and the other covering advanced topics for more experienced practitioners. Some of the topics for new practitioners include an introduction to TTAB practice, and best practice tips from a panel of experienced practitioners; new topics for experienced practitioners include a session on non-traditional marks and how to make effective arguments at the TTAB. In conjunction with the CLE programming, there will be a luncheon, in which practitioners can meet and interact with USPTO managing attorneys and other USPTO officials. The day will end with a TTAB hearing, followed by a networking happy hour reception.
