AIPLA award to provide all-expenses paid trip to Annual Meeting in Washington, DC for a junior corporate attorney or patent agent
The Maurice Klitzman Award was created to help young corporate patent attorneys continue their learning.
The Maurice Klitzman Award provides a junior corporate attorney or corporate patent agent the opportunity to attend the AIPLA Annual Meeting and to be connected with an experienced mentor during the meeting.
The award was established as a lasting and appropriate memorial to Mr. Klitzman for his active service to AIPLA. His heart and soul were dedicated to training young patent attorneys and helping them to develop a broad approach to IP Law with a conviction to moral principles and ethics. His career was a unique blend of corporate IP law, heart-felt support for the inventor, and shaping the mindset of future IP leaders.
The award will cover the recipient’s reasonable travel and accommodation expenses during the 2015 Annual Meeting October 22-24 in Washington, DC; namely, coach air or train fare, hotel accommodation at the conference hotel, complimentary registration and function tickets, and incidental ground transportation. In addition, the recipient of the award will be assigned a mentor to provide guidance during the meeting and facilitate the opportunity to meet members of the AIPLA leadership.
