The Intellectual Property Law Society (IPLS) serves as an information and resource center for students interested in the field of intellectual property. The group provides a forum to address current intellectual property issues, such as patent, copyright, trademark, and technology-related law, along with providing access to opportunities for academic and career advancement.
The area of Intellectual Property is an ever growing field of law. As technology and business expands, the law must meet the new challenges this development creates. Southwestern's IPLS is focused on charting and discussing the changes being made to Intellectual Property Law while developing an open dialogue with the people and organizations which are currently shaping the field.Over the course of the year, the IPLS will be bringing several speakers from industry, government and scholastic institutions to discuss the legal implications of technology and business. The meetings will not only facilitate a means of learning the key facets of IP Law but it will also provide a forum to express concerns over potential transformations to the field.
