Programs and Events
Academic Day and Career Development Day

INTA presents a unique day of programming and networking opportunities designed specifically for the academic community. This year there are two events – Academic Day, specifically designed for professors, and Career Development Day, created for students.

Professor events include:

  • All-Professor Panel Presentation: Educators explore the boundaries of trademark enforcement and trademark misuse. 
  • Professor Breakfast/Luncheon: An opportunity for professors to take a break from lecturing and hear up-to-date briefings from speakers on the front lines of trademark law and policy.
  • Trademark Scholarship Symposium: Trademark scholars present papers and obtain feedback from accomplished academics and trademark practitioners.

Student events include:

  • What They Didn’t Teach You in Law School about Trademark Law – A pragmatic presentation on practicing trademark law. Learn from practicing trademark attorneys about the differences in the trademark laws in different countries. 
  • Getting Involved with INTA: A Working Lunch for Law Students– Led by members of the Academic Committee, the group will discuss INTA, the association’s plans for the future and how students can get involved. 
  • Speed Networking for law students: Learn how to present yourself and make valuable contacts. 
  • Careers in Trademark Law: A Panel Discussion for Law Students: legal professionals offer advice about career opportunities.

At the end of the day, unwind at the Academic and Young Practitioner Happy Hour, the perfect opportunity for law and paralegal students, practitioners new to trademark law, professors and adjunct professors to discuss, over cocktails, interesting new trademark law developments.
