AIPLA 2020 VIRTUAL ANNUAL MEETING [OCT. 22-30, 2020]

[EARLY REGISTRATION DISCOUNT DEADLINE: SEPT. 21, 2020]

AIPLA’s Annual Meeting is the can’t-miss gathering of intellectual property (IP) professionals each year. This year we are excited to expand the reach of this event by creating an immersive digital experience that brings all the distinguished speakers, networking opportunities and excitement straight to you.

This year’s all-digital meeting continues our tradition of providing leading edge speakers and topics on a platform where practitioners can connect with peers from around the globe, tackle their most pressing challenges and explore new products and services.

The #aiplaAM20 allows the global IP community to safely share ideas and skills that will shape our future. You’ll be able to participate in all the motivating moments of the meeting regardless of where you are. Make plans to join us for a uniquely immersive and engaging digital experience, designed to inspire.

BUSINESS LAW SECTION (BLS) OF THE FLORIDA BAR: VIRTUAL ANNUAL RETREAT [SEPT. 2-4, 2020]

BLS would like to invite any FIU Law student who is interested in attending any of the Annual Retreat committee events or programs to participate. Each committee meeting has a separate Zoom link, and anyone can join. Here are a few examples of the events law students might particularly enjoy:

  • Sept. 2 1:00 p.m. Inclusion/Mentoring/Fellowship and Membership Committee Joint Meeting (these committees are in charge of the Fellows and Scholars Programs for law students and young lawyers)
  • Sept. 3 12:15 p.m. BLS Judicial Round Table (this is an event featuring primarily business court judges)
  • Sept. 3 6:00 p.m. IMF Networking Event (this is a reception to introduce our BLS Fellows)

*The only event that we request the students not join is the Executive Council Meeting on Friday, September 4, at 9:00 a.m., as this meeting is mandatory for all BLS committee chairs, co-chairs, and liaisons, and it would be unwieldy to have too many people join remotely.
