Chapters: San Diego

San Diego Chapter

Welcome to the LES San Diego Chapter

Licensing is a key strategy of many of San Diego’s technology-based companies. As one of the world’s most important technology centers, San Diego’s life sciences and high tech clusters gather talent from industry, universities, research institutes and the service professions all seeking highly informative educational opportunities on different aspects of licensing. The LES San Diego Chapter, following the mission of LES, holds monthly meetings where expert speakers address licensing related issues relevant to all industries. The meetings also emphasize networking, the other LES mission. Our Chapter holds one or two social events each year.

The meetings are open to both LES Members and non members. Presentations are posted on the San Diego Chapter's home page, and contact information is provided for those willing to participate in the exchange following each meeting. Most sessions qualify for one hour of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit for attorneys.

LES membership provides you a reduced rate for local meeting registration as well as substantial discounts on registration for the LES Spring and Annual Meetings. Join LES now. It’s a great deal and a wonderful organization. We hope to see you soon at an upcoming San Diego Chapter meeting!

Sponsorship opportunities:

LES San Diego offers sponsorships on a per meeting basis. The sponsorship package includes exposure on the LES San Diego website, multiple tags on our e-mail blast announcements and prominent displays at the event.
