Announcement Description
  

Thank you to all who were able to join us for our joint committee CLE program at AIPLA's Annual Meeting in D.C.  We had an audience of well over 100 people and enjoyed an interesting and lively discussion of ethical guidelines and potential pitfalls for patent attorneys and agents who practice in Israel, China, Japan, and Europe.  Special thanks to Penny Prater for moderating the discussion and to Joel Beider, Erik Dokter, Aki Ryuka, and Tom Moga for serving as panelists.​

  

We are currently planning our next Committee Delegation Trip to Israel, which will take place April 29-May 2, 2018.  As we have done previously, we are coordinating our trip to coincide with AIPPI-Israel's 2018 International IP Conference in Tel Aviv, which is scheduled for the same week.  Delegates will spend two days in Tel Aviv, participating in AIPPI-Israel's conference, and two days participating in AIPLA delegation meetings.  Further details on the trip will be circulated to Committee Members by email and posted on the committee microsite.  Please contact Rivka Jungreis (rivka.jungreis@tevapharm.com) for more information or to join the delegation.

  

​Please join us at the Annual Meeting for a joint committee CLE program, presented by the IP Practice in Israel Committee and the Professionalism & Ethics Committee. We will have a panel discussion with speakers from Europe, Japan, China, and Israel on the subject of ethical codes of conduct for patent attorneys, followed by interactive Q/A.  Come hear about key local ethical issues that U.S practitioners need to be mindful of when working with clients in these countries. Thursday, Oct. 19 at 3:30PM.

  

​Please join us in Minneapolis during the Spring Meeting!  Our committee will meet on Wednesday, May 18, from 4:30-5:30PM to discuss our recent mission trip to Israel and begin preliminary planning for our next trip.  

  

​Come join the Israel Practice Committee at NYU for our roadshow conference on Innovation Clusters this Friday, February 26.  Looking forward to seeing all of you there.  Registration for this free event available on AIPLA homepage. 


  

The IP Practice in Israel Committee is co-presenting a conference on Innovation Clusters next month together with NYU Law School’s Engelberg Center on Innovation Law & Policy.  We have already confirmed a number of terrific speakers and panelists with expertise regarding innovation clusters in Israel, Silicon Valley, and elsewhere and will be examining what lessons can be learned in terms of developing innovation ecosystems in New York City and other regions.  

This FREE conference will take place at NYU Law School on the morning of Friday, February 26, followed by an optional subsidized networking lunch.   Registration information to follow.


  

​Our next delegation trip to Israel is confirmed for March 20-23, 2016.  We will be attending AIPPI-Israel's Conference in Tel Aviv on March 21-22.  Our Committee's meetings will take place on March 20 and 23.  Please contact Rivka Jungreis or David Colb as soon as possible if you would like to join us on this trip.

  

Over the next few months, we will begin planning the Committee's next trip to Israel, which is expected to take place in March 2016.  We plan to coordinate the trip such that delegates may also attend the AIPPI-Israel Conference scheduled for the same month in Tel Aviv.​  Further details will be forthcoming.  In the interim, if you have any ideas or suggestions for the trip, please forward them to Rivka Jungreis or David Colb.

  

Last month, the Committee completed its second trip to Israel, led by Bill Mandir and David Colb and joined by AIPLA President Wayne Sobon.  It was a great experience for all who participated and we look forward to planning the Committee's next visit.
