The Los Angeles Intellectual Property Law Association (LAIPLA) is proud to announce that it is seeking TWO applicants for the 2018 Diversity Fellowship. LAIPLA created the Diversity Fellowship to increase the number of IP practitioners from underrepresented backgrounds. This year, the Diversity Fellowship is graciously sponsored by Arent Fox LLP and Stradling Yocca Carlson & Rauth, P.C. The Diversity Fellowship will be hosted this year at two major global corporations, Boardriders, Inc. in Huntington Beach, California and Edwards Lifesciences Corporation in Irvine, California during the upcoming summer. Each selected recipient of the Diversity Fellowship will receive a stipend of $6,000, and gain an invaluable opportunity to build contacts with IP practitioners and experience in the field.
