Special Registration Opportunities

Because of the unique program we’re offering, AIPLA is proud to offer a variety of special registration discounts and options for the Mid-Winter Institute. 

Special Invitation for First-Time In-House Corporate Counsel Attendees 

AIPLA offers a program to encourage in-house corporate counsel to attend AIPLA major meetings to see first-hand the outstanding CLE programs we provide. We are pleased to continue this special offer for the 2013 Mid-Winter Institute. For individuals who have never attended an AIPLA major meeting, such as a Spring, Annual or Mid-Winter Meeting, who are also corporate in-house counsel, AIPLA will waive the registration fee. Tickets to the events are not included in this registration. You will need to pay for those events separately. This waiver of fees is available for one stated meeting only. To take advantage of this one-time offer, simply complete the registration form and fax it to us at (703) 412-1304. Once AIPLA has verified that this is your first stated meeting and that you meet the in-house corporate counsel criteria, you will receive a registration confirmation. Our hope is that you enjoy your experience at your first AIPLA meeting and that you will join us again for future programs and become more actively involved with the work of the Association, especially through involvement with the Committees. If you qualify for this special offer, please select the box listed as “first-time corporate in-house counsel” on the registration form. 

AIPLA Members Bringing a Client/Corporate Colleague

AIPLA members are encouraged to invite non-member clients and/or corporate colleagues (not eligible to be an AIPLA member) to attend the 2013 Mid-Winter Institute.  Your client or corporate colleague can attend at the AIPLA member rate. We will provide you a coupon code to share with your client/colleague so that they can register online.  Contact us at to receive the code. Your client or corporate colleague can also register via paper by checking the “AIPLA/LES Member or Client/Corporate Colleague of an AIPLA Member” box on the registration form and including your name on the form.

Corporate Small Business Executives/Entities

For corporate business attendees, if your company has fewer than than 250 employees, you will receive 25% off the registration fee. To register online at this discounted rate, please contact AIPLA at for a coupon code. If you are registering using a paper registration form, check the “Corporate Small Entity” box. As an added incentive, if you’re not an AIPLA member and join AIPLA at the same time as you register, you can register at the member rate, which is a savings of $455.
