The Intellectual Property Law Section of the Idaho State Bar will soon, once again, offer its Intellectual Property Certification Course Scholarship to members of the Section, including law student members, attorney members, and other members.  Past selected scholarship recipients received reimbursements of up to $500 toward expenses already personally incurred for pursuing certifications or other higher-level learning opportunities for the practice of IP Law in Idaho where such certifications/opportunities would otherwise have been a financial hardship.  These expenses have included, for example, patent bar study course and exam costs.

An official announcement—setting the application period, qualifications, and requirements—is expected to be circulated by the IP Law Section around December 2021 to January 2022. (Details from the last offering of this scholarship are available here: 2021 IP Certification Course Scholarship Announcement.)

To become a member of the Section, please register using the Section Registration Form.  Law students may register as members for FREE.  Law Professors and Judicial Law Clerks may join for $20 per year.  Otherwise, standard membership dues are $40 per year.
