Global Fellows

The Global Fellows Committee organizes and recruits attorneys to participate in two four-day seminars, one in Washington, DC, and one in Munich, Germany. The participants are selected from candidates who appear to be members of the next generation of leaders in patents in the US, Europe, and potentially Asia. The seminars provide high-level meetings with senior government officials as well as guided group discussions. A key purpose of the Global Fellows Series, beyond the pure educational aspect of the seminars, is to introduce these next-generation leaders to each other and foster lasting professional connections.
