GIPLA (Intellectual Property)

Mission Statement

The Gonzaga Intellectual Property Law Association (GIPLA) is a law-student organization helping members connect with IP practitioners in the local community, explore career opportunities, and learn about the IP field. We:

  • Have a student seat on the Intellectual Property Section of the Washington State Bar Association-Spokane
  • Receive reduced rates for IP CLEs
  • Have an internal mailing list for announcing local area IP events
  • Work closely with the IP faculty of the university in organizing talks and attracting guest speakers

Annual Activities

Spring Networking Event: Join GIPLA in late February to meet successful IP attorneys from across the Pacific Northwest. Learn about local IP firms and hiring opportunities. For more information, please contact the club at the link below.
