The Michigan Intellectual Property Law Association (MIPLA) is an association of intellectual property attorneys, patent agents, and law students from across the State of Michigan who are interested in patents, trademarks, copyrights, and other intellectual property issues.


During this COVID-19 pandemic, we hope that all MIPLA members are staying safe. Please note that we have canceled this year’s Judge’s Banquet due to the pandemic, but we fully expect to have the event resume in 2021.

Please stay tuned for updates regarding upcoming meetings, and please save the date for our Spring Fling boat cruise on June 4, 2021.
