IPIL/Houston 2018 National Conference in Santa Fe

IPIL/Houston 2018 National Conference

June 2, 2018
Inn and Spa at Loretto
211 Old Santa Fe Trail
Santa Fe, NM 87501



IPIL’s National Conference, traditionally held in Santa Fe, New Mexico, has through the years provided scholars a unique setting to develop, debate and deploy commentary and policy proposals concerning intellectual property and information law. Topics for past conferences have included Patents, Copyright, Trademark & Trade Secret, Information & eCommerce, and Cyberlaw.

The Summer 2018 Conference will focus on Trademark Law by exploring current trends and future directions in an area of intellectual property law that holds increasing importance in the globalized economy.

Following the event’s tradition of eminent scholars, IPIL is proud to have engaged a distinguished group of speakers who will present and, with conference fellows and other attendees, discuss papers to appear shortly in Houston Law Review‘s annual IPIL symposium issue.

Registration is necessary for attendance (please use the links above and to the right to contact our Program Director), but there is no charge to attend this event, which is open to members of the legal academy. The IPIL faculty at the University of Houston Law Center hopes that your summer plans can include joining us in the Great Southwest!

This year’s National Conference is made possible by continuing support from IPIL’s Advisory Council and its other Sponsors and Supporters.
