2013 MSIPI Conference
8:30 am – 5:00 pm on Friday, February 22, 2013
University of Mississippi Law School

This second annual conference of the Mid-South Intellectual Property Institute again invites lawyers and entrepreneurs to come together and share knowledge and expertise, while updating their knowledge with the latest developments in intellectual property.

And, what better way to capture the mood of intellectual property than to hold the Institute’s conference in coordination with the Oxford Film Festival, held on the same weekend in Oxford, MS. As we say, come for the law, stay for the movies.
