Intellectual Property Virtual Conference for Legal Management Professionals

October 1, 2020

10:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Central


The Intellectual Property Conference transitioned to a virtual event.

During this year's conference, we focused on the following: 
  • We explored the ability to digitally collaborate and leverage technology in the new normal, as well as how to manage this successfully in an IP practice.
  • An HR expert described tips and tools that will enable us to make better decisions about the operation of our IP business.
  • USPTO experts discussed updates that may affect how we manage our IP practices, and they will provide an update on the new Patent Center.
  • Back by popular demand, the Idea Exchange offered an opportunity to learn and engage with other attendees. 

ALA's Intellectual Property Virtual Conference for Legal Management Professionals is the only IP-focused forum for administrators working in a legal practice setting. It featured:
  • Specialized solutions and education that address changes to the shifting IP landscape
  • Seasoned experts and industry leaders at the forefront of IP law
  • Opportunities to share ideas and explore trends in the IP arena
  • Unique networking opportunities with peers and business partners in this niche field
  • Continuing education credits


The 2019 Intellectual Property Conference for Legal Management Professionals was a unique opportunity to meet and collaborate with colleagues engaged in a dynamic area of the legal industry. This group is forward thinking, innovative and interested in improving the business of law in the Intellectual Property arena!

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.
