Favorite LAIPLA Event: LAIPLA Goes To Court: Effective Oral Advocacy in IP Cases – I like this event for its accessibility and content. Lunch with prominent local patent judges and low cost made this the no-brainer for bringing a squad of my associates along.
Favorite LAIPLA Memory: Spring Seminar 2017 – Jane Wald’s and Helen Omapas’ Trademark Year-in-Review – Poetry Slam/Rap Battle Edition will be a hard one to beat!
