AIPLEF provides scholarships for students pursuing IP law

American Intellectual Property Law Education Foundation seeks to bring diversity to the IP bar via its scholarship program

As the old film noir TV show told us, “There are 8 million stories in the naked city,” and each one is unique. The same holds true for legal professionals – each one has a story of how she or he discovered the law and overcame obstacles on the way to becoming a lawyer. Of course, in this day and age, law school is more expensive than ever, so prospective students often seek out scholarships in order to help assuage the cost. 

Many organizations award scholarships to law students, and one such organization is the American Intellectual Property Law Education Foundation (AIPLEF), which was created to increase the diversity of the IP bar. Over the last 12 years, the AIPLEF has awarded many scholarships to worthy law students, and many of these students have gone on to excel in intellectual property law.
