The panelists will provide tips for new IP practitioners and lessons from their own experience in the field.

Das (Intellectual Ventures), Kelly Lawton (KCBA Business Law Section Chair, Hughes Media Law Group) and Erin Caldwell (BarkerHostetler) with Moderator David Schleifer (KCBA IP Section Vice-Chair, Davis Wright Tremaine) as they discuss the nuances of Intellectual Property law and how to go about getting started in this fast-paced, ever changing field.
