Please join Morrison & Foerster for wine and hors d'oeuvres for the seventh annual AIPLA Women in Intellectual Property Networking Event. The event is a series of simultaneous meetings of women located in the U.S. and abroad who practice IP law or are regularly faced with IP issues in the course of ordinary business. In this regard, numerous events are concurrently held in various domestic and foreign locations by law firms and corporations.
The purpose of the event is to provide an informal forum for women in IP law to come together on a single night to celebrate women in the profession and to provide an opportunity for localized networking, mentoring, and education. At 5:30 p.m. PST, all of the events from the East Coast to the West Coast are joined together via a teleconference or video conference. During the conference, the AIPLA president and executive director address all of the guests and will speak briefly about various AIPLA and IP related issues. The chair and vice-chair of AIPLA's Women in IP Committee will also speak briefly. A highlight of the teleconference is the opening roll call where each city is called out by name and then the host and attendees in that city have an opportunity to state the firm at which their dinner is being held and the number of women in attendance.
