Regular Meetings

PIPLA meets six times per year, in the fall and the spring, in convenient locations throughout the city. Our membership consists of intellectual property attorneys at law firms, companies, and organizations of all sizes.  Law students at Pittsburgh’s two law schools who are interested in pursuing careers in intellectual property also add to the membership.

Our meetings feature presentations from leading jurists, practitioners, academics, and other experts, providing members access to important continuing legal education and networking opportunities in the field of intellectual property.
