The ALA Intellectual Property Conference is by far the legal industry's best opportunity to hear, share and learn what others in the intellectual property community are experiencing. The open discussions with peers, sharing of ideas, and problem-solving are extremely unique to the intellectual property group. Whether you are new to the practice of intellectual property or a seasoned veteran, you leave this conference enriched and rejuvenated.
