"Friends of the MIPLC e.V." Recently Founded

The MIPLC proudly announces the creation of the "Friends of the MIPLC e.V."

Individuals as well as corporations, (patent) law firms, and public entities are invited to become members of this registered, non-profit association. Please visit the association's website for more information.

The "Friends of the MIPLC" will actively take part in the life of the MIPLC in two ways:

First of all, the association grants scholarships to selected students of the MIPLC's LL.M. program. Every year, very bright and highly qualified students from all over the world gain admission, but some of the admitted candidates are unable to actually enroll in the LL.M. program for lack of funds. This is where the "Friends of the MIPLC" step in to help.

Moreover, the association "Friends of the MIPLC" supports scientific conferences and lectures organized in the context of the MIPLC, such as the annual Alumni Conference, during which alumni from all over the world return to the MIPLC to deliver presentations on IP-related topics they are doing research on or are engaged in professionally.

We look forward to welcoming many new members to the "Friends of the MIPLC." Donations and membership fees are tax-deductible.
