Intellectual Property Law Section on SBM Connect

The Intellectual Property Law Section has launched a new website and interactive online community for its members—SBM Connect. This private community will enhance the way we communicate and build relationships through the Section. Log in to SBM Connect today and see what the buzz is all about!

  • ACCESS to archived seminar materials and the IPLS Proceedings
  • NETWORK via a comprehensive member directory
  • SHARE knowledge and resources in the member-only library
  • PARTICIPATE in focused discussion groups

SBM Connect will eventually replace the current section website. Both websites will run concurrently to allow you time to discover the new tools and features available to members.

IPLS is Paperless

    In an effort to save costs and "go green," the IPLS Proceedings will now be available only as an electronic version you can easily view on your computer or mobile devices or save to your own computer.

Calling All Authors—IPLS Proceedings Seeks Contributors

    The IPLS Proceedings features articles that keep section members current on the latest developments in the intellectual property field. The editors report that space for contributions still remains in upcoming issues. So if you have an article or essay that you would like to share with the section membership, such as a comment on a recent case, statute or rule change, an effective practice strategy, or any other relevant topic, please consider submitting your work to the IPLS Proceedings editors at
