General Information

To Register for IPSC 2019, please visit our registration page.

The Center for Intellectual Property Law & Information Technology (CIPLIT®) at DePaul University College of Law will host the 19th Annual Intellectual Property Scholars Conference on August 8 and 9, 2019, at 1 E. Jackson Boulevard, 8th Floor, in Chicago, Illinois.

The IP Scholars Conference brings together intellectual property scholars to present their works-in-progress in order to benefit from the critique of colleagues. The IPSC format is designed to facilitate free-ranging discussion and to help people hone their ideas. Papers presented should be works-in-progress that can benefit from substantial commentary and revision. Because of the importance of group discussion, we ask that attendees and presenters plan to stay for the entire conference. 

There is no charge to attend the conference. Conference presenters and attendees are expected to pay for transportation and lodging. The host will provide complimentary food and beverages throughout the conference.
