2013 Mid-South Intellectual Property Institute Conference
Second Annual Conference
February 22, 2013
University of Mississippi Law School
Mid-South Intellectual Property Institute
If we are to see the development of creative, entrepreneurial enterprises throughout the Mid-South, we need to engage, foster and promote an active core of well informed and active lawyers who practice in the area of intellectual property. That is the purpose of the Mid-South Intellectual Property Institute.
This second annual conference of the Mid-South Intellectual Property Institute again invites lawyers and entrepreneurs to come together and share knowledge and expertise, while updating their knowledge with the latest developments in intellectual property.
And, what better way to capture the mood of intellectual property than to hold the Institute’s conference in coordination with the
Oxford Film Festival, held on the same weekend in Oxford, MS. As we say, come for the law, stay for the movies.
The Mid-South Intellectual Property Institute is co-sponsored by the
University of Mississippi School of Law, and
Our 2013 sponsors are, , McGlinchey Stafford PLLC, Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP , and the UM Center for Continuing Legal Education.
Several sponsorships remain open for 2013.
