Section of Intellectual Property Law Announces Young Lawyers Fellowship Program

The ABA Section of Intellectual Property Law (IPL) seeks nominees to fill at least two three-year positions in its Fellowship Program. This specialized program was designed to encourage young lawyers to become actively and integrally involved in the Section’s meetings and committees.

The Fellowship Program provides young lawyers with the opportunity to participate in key meetings that contribute significantly to the development of our system for the protection of intellectual property rights. The selected fellows will receive funding of up to $1,500 per year, for three years, to attend the IPL Section’s meetings.

Participants in the IPL Young Lawyers Fellowship Program will be expected to attend the IPL Fall Leadership Meeting and Annual Intellectual Property Law Conference (held each spring) for three consecutive years, as well as participate in any stand-alone meetings of their committees.

If you are a proven leader in the ABA Young Lawyers Division, the IPL Section’s Young Lawyers Committee, or your local intellectual property or young-lawyers bar associations, become a part of the future in the ABA IPL Section.
