Founded in 1897, AIPLA is a national bar association constituted primarily of lawyers in private and corporate practice, in government service, and in the academic community. AIPLA represents a wide and diverse spectrum of individuals, companies and institutions involved directly or indirectly in the practice of patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret, and unfair competition law, as well as other fields of law affecting intellectual property. Our members represent both owners and users of intellectual property.
AIPLA is proud to provide scholarships as part of the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair to recognize the innovation and scientific achievement of young researchers. These young people are the ones who will apply for patents, trademarks and copyrights that will make the world a better place to live.
