BIO IPCC Conference

The biannual BIO Intellectual Property Counsels Committee Conference offers timely, relevant educational sessions on the latest issues in the biotech IP sector, informal networking events designed to promote discussion and foster relationships among industry colleagues, and practical tips for attendees to use the next day. Over 100 attendees representing biotech and pharma companies, law firms, academia and government come together from the U.S. and abroad to attend this one of a kind event. We invite youto attend the 2016 BIO IPCC-Spring Conference in San Antonio, Texas.

CLE Credits

BIO will be offering continuing legal education credit at the 2016 IPCC Conference. Application for CLE credit will be submitted in California and Virginia, and attorneys will be notified if BIO receives credit approval. Sessions at our IPCC conference do not meet the CLE eligibility criteria for the state of Texas, as it is considered a business meeting, and as such we will not be submitting applications to the Texas State Bar. Attorneys needing CLE credit from Texas and other states are welcome to sign in, pick up the CLE forms and apply to their jurisdictions on their own. BIO will provide you with all the materials and documentation required to apply with your individual state CLE Boards.
