Founded in 1897, AIPLA is a national bar association constituted primarily of lawyers in private and corporate practice, in government service, and in the academic community. AIPLA represents a wide and diverse spectrum of individuals, companies and institutions involved directly or indirectly in the practice of patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret, and unfair competition law, as well as other fields of law affecting intellectual property. Our members represent both owners and users of intellectual property.
In October 2011, the slate of Officers and Board Members was announced. The complete list of Officers and Board Members can be viewed by clicking the Governance>Association Leadership links on the left navigation bar.
