Chicago partner Ken Dort was appointed as Chair of the Information Technology Committee of the American Bar Association Section of Intellectual Property Law (ABA-IPL) for the 2018−2019 membership year. This Section is the largest organization of intellectual property lawyers in the world and a highly respected and impactful voice of the IP bar.

Members provide thoughtful consideration of emerging issues that shape and influence the views and policies advocated by the Section, encourage the development of relevant and timely programming and publications dedicated to those issues, and are the first face of recruitment and retention of members of the Section.
