Tech Summit & Annual CLE 2021

Seventeenth Annual IP and Social Justice CLE Seminar

Thank you to all that participated in the 17th annual IP and Social Justice CLE program. Our program is the longest running IP and social justice CLE program in the country. We work hard to start conversations surrounding diversity in IP and to help ensure these conversations continue to take place. And our conversations aren’t just theoretical, we focus on real world solutions for increasing awareness of social justice issues and diversity in the field of IP. We focus on diversity in several ways; diversity of our CLE panelists, diversity of attendees, and discussions of how IP ownership impacts diverse communities. Read More

The CLE  Program’s core objectives include:

● Educating minority and other IP attorneys on current developments in the law in an environment that highlights the social justice obligations of IP law.

● Providing minority and other attorneys in government, civil rights, public interest, and/or non-profit practice a free/nominal fee opportunity to develop IP practice skills.

● Providing an opportunity for experienced minority IP lawyers to demonstrate their expertise in the field to audiences they might not otherwise reach, while offering professional networking opportunities for minority and other IP attorneys.

● Diversifying the pipeline of future IP attorneys by introducing HUSL students to IP law and policy experts and providing them with opportunities to engage in research and internship projects in connection with the preparation of the IP CLE curriculum. (See e.g. for HUSL student and alumni CLE conference testimonials).
