Mission Statement

The IPLS is a student organization aimed at providing an environment for students to meet to explore the various aspects of Intellectual Property. Intellectual Property law encompasses patent, copyright, and trademark. This year our organization will be hosting many guest speakers regarding various topics as well as start a mentoring program for students to begin networking with IP attorneys in the Denver area. We encourage interested students to become a part of the society and help organize and suggest events or speakers they are interested in hearing from.
