PRACTITIONER LECTURES

The Law Center benefits from its involvement with law practitioners in Houston, whose members comprise one of the most sophisticated intellectual property bars in the world.  The IPIL Institute and IPSO, the organization for students of intellectual property and information law, regularly engage these practitioners for lectures and presentations in a variety of non-class settings for enrichment of the discourse and instruction in intellectual property and information law.  These efforts extend as well to leading practitioners located outside of Houston and Texas.
