Invitation to the Ipplewhip Party -- for IP solicitors only

The IPKat has just learned that the Intellectual Property Law Working Party (IPLWP, or "Ipplewhip" as the IPKat assumes it must be pronounced) of the Law Society for England and Wales is seeking to fill up to six vacancies, for which it invites applications for membership.

Right: After the Working Party meeting finishes, members relax and enjoy the cordiality of each others' company

According to the official announcement,

"... The IPLWP is specifically looking for intellectual property solicitors, from both private practice and industry, specialising in all aspects of IP.

Applicants should be willing to be active participants in the work of the IPLWP, and should be able to commit to four meetings a year, in central London, from 6.00pm to 8.00pm. Meetings for 2008 take place on 29 April, 23 July and 22 October.

The Law Society wishes to encourage applications from IP solicitors irrespective of gender, race, colour, age, sexual orientation or disability, and appointments will be based on merit, following an open and clear selection process".

If you are interested in applying, please contact Gareth Sykes at Constitutional Affairs, The Law Society, 113 Chancery Lane, London WC2A 1PLE -- or just email him. Closing date for applications is Tuesday, 27 May 2008.

The IPKat, who loves parties, hopes that lots of eager people will apply.

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
