The Los Angeles Intellectual Property Law Association (LAIPLA) is proud to announce that it is seeking two applicants for the 2019 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 Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP and co-sponsored by Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP and Buchalter, a Professional Corporation. The Diversity Fellowship will be hosted this year by two host companies, Harman International Industries, Inc. in Northridge, California and EVgo Services, LLC in Los Angeles, California for eight (8) weeks during the 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.
