DBA IP Section 25th Anniversary Celebration
The DBA’s IP Section Is Having a 25th Anniversary Celebration
As you may have heard, the Dallas Bar Association’s IP Section turned 25 this year and they are hosting a celebration on the evening of October 1st at the Belo Mansion for all of those involved in IP in and around North Texas. They expect many prominent members of our IP community to attend, including judges, USPTO officials, entrepreneurs, business leaders, university and law school deans, and legal professionals. In addition, the Federal Circuit will be hearing cases here in Dallas on the same day, and the IP Section will be hosting the judges at the 25th Anniversary celebration.
The celebration is also an opportunity to highlight the IP Section’s new scholarship. Starting this year, the IP Section will be awarding scholarships to students from each of the three North Texas law schools: Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law, Texas A&M University School of Law, and University of North Texas Dallas College of Law. The goal is to grow the scholarship fund over the years so that the IP Section can support students with a desire to practice IP law here in North Texas.
There are a number of firms and companies that are underwriting the events, including, Baker & McKenzie, Baker Botts, Carstens & Cahoon, Conley Rose, Harness, Dickey & Pierce, Harper Bates & Champion, Haynes & Boone, Hemingway & Hansen, Hubbard Johnston, Klemchuk LLP, Richard Law Group, Thompson & Knight, and Toyota. All proceeds exceeding the cost of the anniversary event will go toward the scholarship fund, and all underwriters will receive recognition for funding scholarships. Individual tickets will be available for sale at $125. Discounted tickets will be available to those that wish to attend but may have trouble with the ticket price, such as law students.
