Bridging the Intersection of Intellectual Property and Regulations

This one day event at the MSU College of Law explores the complexities of protecting your intellectual property, while meeting industry regulations both nationally and internationally.  Join us as we discuss the challenges and solutions industry leaders have taken to address brand management and protection measures along at different stages of  the supply chain.


Start the day by earning a certificate in the basics of brand protection, international sales, or global food law during the opening seminars; apply the newly gained knowledge during the panels and strategy sessions, which include time and space for strategizing and networking with others; and wrap the day up with a networking reception designed to solidify newly forged relationships.


Unable to join us for the whole day?  Consider joining us for only the panel sessions.
