LAIPLA is proud to present its flagship, nationally-renowned intellectual property conference—the Annual Spring Seminar Retreat.  Spring Seminar is a three-day, can’t miss, get-a-way weekend that combines high-quality and in-depth legal content with an abundance of networking opportunities and social activities.  More than 30+ speakers consisting of leading legal scholars and experts, as well as in-house counsel and private practitioners will be presenting material on issues related to intellectual property and cutting edge technology.  Among the many presentations, there will be a fireside chat with Ms. Regan Smith, the General Counsel and Associate Register of Copyrights for the United States Copyright Office, and a keynote address by Ted Lieu, U.S. Congressman from California, who will discuss a host of issues related to the Internet, technology, and cybersecurity.


The SDIPLA has two primary aims: (1) connect local IP practioners with each other, and (2) provide topical, meaningful continuing legal education.
