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 address new developments in trademark law.
- 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.
- Being the Best Counsel You Can Be – The panel of practicing attorneys will discuss what they expect from international counsel and the cultural differences in dealing with attorneys from other countries.
- 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.
