38th Annual Fall Institute on Intellectual Property Law
September 29 – October 1, 2022
Moody Gardens Hotel (Galveston, Texas)

The 2022 Fall IP Institute is in-person. To the extent pandemic precautions are necessary, the in-person approach is facilitated by Moody Gardens and their experience with the pandemic.  While the event will seek to return to a pre-pandemic approach, we will monitor the situation and if necessary we will encourage wearing masks, one-way walking paths inside the ballroom, personal handwashing, and same seating throughout the day.  Moody Garden’s COVID-19 guidance is available here.

Please visit our Frequently Asked Questions for the 2022 Fall IP Institute, which is updated as needed.

Many thanks to our Sponsors
