“We’ve found that there is a lack of comprehensive resources to educate technology and patent industry professionals on intellectual property, especially in embedded systems. With the Intellectual Property Symposium we are working to change that by offering a forum where professionals can go to learn about the key topics that influence their business. With the State Bar of California approving our content, our attendees will be able receive the continuing legal education credits they deserve for taking the initiative to come to the event and learn from experts on intellectual property law. This is a fantastic testament of the caliber of the event’s content and speakers. We are thrilled to announce this approval.”
