MIPSA General Overview

"The Congress shall have power … To promote the progress of science and useful arts”
U.S. Const., art. I, § 8, cl. 8

Intellectual property (IP) is an area of law concerned with patentable inventions, copyrightable works, trademarks, trade secrets and, more broadly, exclusive rights attaching to intangible assets and creative activities. From a policy perspective, intellectual property law is generally concerned with the promotion of progress and the protection of trade secrets and brands. In practice, intellectual property encompasses a range of legal services including counseling clients on strategic management of technology, creative assets, and other information resources in a sophisticated, ever-changing, and competitive business environment.

In collaboration with the Intellectual Property Law Program at the University of Maryland School of Law, Journal of Journal of Business & Technology Law, The Maryland IP Law Quarterly (IPQ), and Maryland Intellectual Property Legal Resource Center, MIPSA annually organizes:

  1. Lectures by prominent scholars and practitioners;
  2. Career panels and networking events; and
  3. Other activities aimed at inspiring and educating.
