I am beyond thankful for the scholarship opportunity that I received to attend the International Trademark Association’s (INTA) 2016 Annual Meeting. I was able to meet with practitioners, professors, and students from around the world who are proficient in the field of trademark law and who are helping to shape the global face of intellectual property. Via the Annual Meeting’s Career Day, educational sessions, networking events, and receptions, I received solid advice and tips about becoming more involved with INTA and further developing my career in trademark law.
INTA helps attendees get the most out of their Annual Meeting activities. I believe that my time at the five-day conference was one of the best experiences of my academic life thus far, because of the people that I met both before and during the conference who encouraged me to keep striving toward my goal of becoming an IP attorney. My plans moving forward are to get more involved in INTA’s committees, the UNREAL Campaign, and the roundtable and Table Topic events and assist to the best of my ability. Thank you once again to all of those who had a hand in making the INTA Annual Meeting such a success! I cannot wait to see all my new friends and colleagues for the INTA 2017 Annual Meeting in Barcelona, Spain!
