Next Gen Summit

As part of our group of initiatives to empower future generations, each year we host the Next Gen Summit, a one-day event designed for female attorneys in their first 10 to 12 years of practice.

The Next Gen Summit features keynote speakers, inspirational panels of female leaders in tech, law and policy, interactive workshops with a focus on professional development, and networking.  The event ends with a reception, the perfect opportunity to continue networking with the connections made that day.


Mock Program

Associates and junior partners have the opportunity to participate in a mock exercise. The programming may consist of a mock trial, business pitches, or other professional activities designed to improve participants skills and receive feedback from leading experts in IP and law. Judges, in-house counsel, partners act as panels or judges to help the next generation prepare for tough, but routine business occurrences.

ChIPs Mock Program is by invitation only.
