Dear TIPLA Members,

Attached is the details flier for the upcoming Fall CLE Event mentioned in the TIPLA Membership/Event brochure.  It is sure to be an informative session.

Also, lunch is provided along with a reception afterwards at the College of Law. Now that we can eat and get CLE credit the only thing left is walking AND chewing gum!
Looking forward to seeing you there!

Best to All,

Dear TIPLA Members,

It seems that Summer has dwindled toward a twilight and the sounds and smells of Football Games and Tailgate parties is in the air.

It also, once again, is a new and exciting year of events for TIPLA.  Attached is the 2014-2015 Event and Membership Renewal Brochure.

As you can see we have some great events planned and CLE Activities to assist and advance everyone’s practice.

Our first event is an All-Day CLE event “Doing Business in China,” organized by Prof. Llew Gibbons at the UT College of Law.  This event is co-sponsored by TIPLA and the Toledo Bar Association.  It includes several prominent speakers and can earn you up to 7 hours of CLE credit.  That’s 7 hours of CLE for $75!  (A great value at half the member price of the TBA!)

I encourage you to mark this event on your calendars and plan on enjoying another year of TIPLA Activities.

This year the membership rate remains the same as last year (Can it get any better?).

You can mail in your dues payment (see the brochure) or you can bring the dues payment and the $75 CLE co-payment to the Fall CLE at UTLaw!

Looking forward to seeing colleagues and friends this year!

Best to All,

James A. Duggan
TIPLA Secretary

The TBA Intellectual Property Committee is proud to host an event at Seed Coworking (25 S. St. Clair) on Friday morning, 2/21. The seminar is aimed at what’s commonly referred to as Toledo’s “start-up culture,” especially those ventures based on Information Technology. The seminar is open to attorneys and non-attorneys alike.

We expect CLE accreditation for 2.25 general hours. The price will be $70 for both TBA and TIPLA members. There will be no charge for non-attorneys. A working outline may be found here.

We hope that this will appeal to both IP and small business practitioners alike. Please hold the date, and help us spread the word. Thanks.

It’s already that time of year!

The TIPLA holiday party will be Friday, December 13 at 1:00 pm. The event will be held at the Toledo Museum of Art. A lunch, open bar, and music will be provided for all members. Additionally, the museum will be open during that time in case anyone wants to view the art on display throughout the museum.

Please R.S.V.P by Thursday, December 5 to Toledoipla@gmail.com or by calling Kristen Fries @ 419-365-2069.

A reminder with more details will be sent out closer to the event.

It should be a fun event!
