Intellectual Property Law Seminar

Howard University School of Law - The Law Library
2900 Van Ness Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20008

The Fourteenth Annual Intellectual Property and Social Justice Continuing Legal Education Seminar will be held on the campus of the Howard University School of Law at 2900 Van Ness Street, N.W., Washington, DC, and is presented by the Howard Intellectual Property Program and Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner, LLP.

The continuing convergence of the major forms of IP protection has made it essential that IP lawyers keep pace with important developments in multiple areas of IP practice. Today’s IP attorneys keep abreast of relevant changes in the law and often find knowledge of major developments in IP jurisprudence.

Moreover, the need for fresh, innovative approaches to new IP challenges spurs the demand for diversity in the IP bar. To meet the evolving needs of today’s IP practitioners, creators, developers, and distributors, Howard Law School presents a comprehensive one-day program, through which seasoned attorneys can enhance their skills, experienced minority and women attorneys can reach wider audiences, and aspiring IP practitioners can enjoy a unique and affordable opportunity to become familiar with key IP principles and important controversies of the day.
