AIPLA Committees

With nearly 60 committees focused on a wide-array of specialties and topics, there is a place for every member to get involved. 

Our committees are the heartbeat of AIPLA and thousands of members actively contribute their time, talent, and expertise to the advancement of their careers, the association, and the IP profession. 

Participation in committee work also exposes you to additional member benefits, provides leadership opportunities and expands your professional network.
