The Intellectual Property Litigation Committee is one of the 40 practice groups open to all members of the American Bar Association’s Section of Litigation. Joining the committee entitles a member to a number of benefits (see list below). The committee’s leadership is made up of experienced litigators from all over the country working to keep IP litigators fully up to date in all areas relating to patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, the Internet, and related unfair competition cases. Though focusing on federal law, it also touches upon state law and international concerns. We are one of the largest and most active substantive law committees in the Litigation Section.
To accomplish this goal, the committee provides its members with these benefits:
- Intellectual Property Litigation newsletter;
- networking opportunities with leading practitioners;
- discounted CLE programs;
- invitations to substantive meetings and social events;
- opportunities to write for committee publications, speak on committee panels, and participate in the activities of our subcommittees, see list below.
Whether you want to receive Intellectual Property Litigation, learn from and network with top litigators, or contribute to our programs and publications, or all of the above, join us. Section of Litigation members may join up to three committees at no charge.
