The Annual MIPLC Alumni Conference

The MIPLC initiated the annual Alumni Conference to make use of the competences of the Alumni Network, both for the advancement of IP and competition law, as well as for the benefit of the Network's members. Since the first conference in 2012, MIPLC graduates from all over the world have been returning to Munich to share their experiences, discuss cutting-edge IP topics, meet old friends, and enlarge their professional networks. Both the conference and the dinner party offer ample opportunity for these activities.

8th Annual MIPLC Alumni Conference

On February 29, 2020, the 8th Annual MIPLC Alumni Conference on Intellectual Property and Competition Law will take place, jointly organized by the MIPLC and "Friends of the MIPLC e.V.".
