Director Tracy-Gene G. Durkin will be speaking at the 2019 AIPLA Design Rights Boot Camp in Chicago, Illinois on Tuesday, August 6, 2019. Tracy will be speaking on the topics of software and graphical user interfaces (GUIs) in a breakout session.


The Design Rights Boot Camp is a first of its kind two-day comprehensive CLE program designed for both new and experienced IP practitioners who wish to learn about protecting and enforcing designs in all areas of IP, including design patents, copyright and trademark dress.

The two-track program has classes for both beginning practitioners and experienced practitioners that want to know more about the increasingly important area of design rights. The whole range of design rights practice will be covered, from prosecution to enforcement. International topics are also included, including the Hague agreement, international enforcement and copyright internationally.
