What is the Georgia Intellectual Property Summit Dinner Gala?
We are pleased to announce details of the inaugural Georgia Intellectual Property Summit Dinner Honoring Members of the Judiciary. The gala marks the first time ever that the three major intellectual property organizations in Georgia, the Intellectual Property Section of the State Bar of Georgia, the Intellectual Property Section of the Atlanta Bar Association, and the Atlanta Intellectual Property Inn of Court, have come together to offer a collaborative event for their members. This must-attend event will honor members of the federal bench, including members of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, the Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, and the United States District Courts of Georgia. This exciting event offers a great opportunity to treat your colleagues and clients to an entertaining evening set against the backdrop of world-class art in Atlanta’s High Museum.
Where and When?
Date: March 1, 2013
Location: High Museum of Art, Atlanta, Georgia
Time: 4:30 – 10:00 p.m.
Dinner, Education and Entertainment:
The evening will begin with a Judges’ Panel in the Hill Auditorium. The IP Section’s Judges’ Panel has perennially been a favorite event of its annual offshore institute. This event provides the opportunity to bring the panel to Atlanta for the benefit of those members who are not able to attend the offshore event. The Judges’ Panel will feature mock oral arguments in the area of patents, copyrights, and trademarks and will qualify for continuing legal education credit.
A cocktail reception with hand-passed hors d’oeuvres will follow the Judges’ Panel. The High Museum has graciously offered to keep their premiere exhibit open for self-guided tours as well. Members of the High Museum staff will be stationed throughout the exhibit to answer questions about featured artworks.
A gourmet seated dinner and dessert, catered by Legendary Partners of Atlanta, will then be held in the Robinson Atrium.
After dinner, guests will be entertained by the Grammy-nominated artist, Julian Lage, and his trio. All About Jazz has called Lage “a giant in the making.” The guitarist grew up in California and was the subject of an Academy Award-nominated documentary, Jules at Eight. He is a protégé of legendary vibraphonist Gary Burton, recording two albums and touring with Burton. He has recently been featured on Piano Jazz: Rising Stars and NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts. Lage received a Grammy nomination in 2009 for Best Contemporary Jazz Album. Time Out New York calls Lage’s music “a major find” that is "springy, intelligent chamber Americana that fits perfectly into a spectrum of Nonesuch-style players like Bill Frisell and Chris Thile's Punch Brothers."
