Intellectual Property Basics for Non-IP Lawyers (04/23/2021)

Includes a Live Event on 04-23-2021 at 12:00 PM (CDT)

Awareness about intellectual property rights is more important than ever for attorneys, innovators, and the general public. Despite its importance, many communities remain unaware of basic intellectual property concepts, including patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets. As a result, their businesses, creations, and inventions may be harmed or stolen by others without a remedy. However, innovative strategies are now emerging to provide non-IP legal practitioners, and the general public with a fundamental understanding of intellectual property and its importance in every aspect of business. Podcasts, blogs, training academies and hands-on activities are among the emerging resources available that help you develop a base-level knowledge of IP that can make you a better advocate for your clients, regardless of your practice area.

Our speakers will share how they have utilized the various educational resources available to expand their knowledge of IP and further their practice. If you are interested in learning more about intellectual property as a practice area or educating your clients about how intellectual property can impact their business, this seminar is for you!
