The protection of intellectual property including patents, trade secrets, trademarks, and copyrights is essential to the progress and promotion of the useful arts. The New Jersey Intellectual Property Law Association (NJIPLA) is devoted to educating its members and the public about intellectual property and its protection under the law. NJIPLA includes hundreds of practicing intellectual property attorneys, patent agents, law students, and interested individuals primarily from New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Connecticut.

FOLLOWING A 68TH YEAR TRADITION...

The New Jersey Intellectual Property Law Association (NJIPLA) hosted its Jefferson Medal Dinner on June 7, 2019. With over 250 people attending, including guests from the judiciary, academia, and public and private practice, NJIPLA President Thomas Triolo presented the Jefferson Medal to The Honorable Gregory M. Sleet (Ret.), United States District Judge for the District of Delaware.

The Jefferson Medal is awarded each year to an individual who has made exceptional contributions to the field of intellectual property law. Previous Medalists include judges, members of Congress, Patent and Trademark Office officials and leaders of the intellectual property bar.
