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 from law firms, 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 governed by a Board of Directors and has a staff of 18, headed by an Executive Director, located in Arlington, Virginia. AIPLA has more than 45 administrative and substantive committees which provide education to their members and formulate proposed positions for the Board of Directors to consider adopting as Association policy.
AIPLA is also the US national group of the Global IP Association AIPPI, known now as the AIPPI-US Division. Learn more about AIPPI-US.

New Sponsorship Opportunities
We are happy to provide additional information and answer your specific questions on individual sponsorship events and items. We are also pleased to discuss with you the advantages and benefits of multi-meeting sponsorships.
New in 2019 – With our new location in 2019, we are completely revamping our exhibition area.
We are MOVING the exhibits out of an expo hall, and placing them directly into the space where meeting attendees will mingle and go to and from sessions.
You will now be a PART OF THE ACTION, on the main floor of the meeting.
