A Message from the Section Chair
“Welcome to the Indianapolis Bar Association's Intellectual Property Section. The IP Section provides CLEs on a wide range of topics for both experienced IP practitioners and those who want to know more about IP. The newly launched IndyBar IP Section web page will have a wealth of information on upcoming CLE and networking events, as well as substantive articles relating to IP issues. We invite you stop by often. Speaking of stopping by, we’ll have some networking opportunities this year. I hope that you can join us to catch up with old colleagues and make new acquaintances. We’re looking forward to a great year! ”
