The Intellectual Property and Technology Laws Society [IPTLS] is an academic society at the West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences, Kolkata (NUJS). Its objective is to research and initiate discussions on contemporary issues relating to Intellectual Property and Technology Laws as well as spread awareness of such laws both within and outside the university.
The IPTLS provides a platform for the discussion and dissemination of opinions on related laws not only specific to India, but also the global community.
IPTLS has had a longstanding record in organizing seminars and conferences, subject-specific workshops for students and essay competitions. The Society has also been involved in research projects and advocacy programmes in association with the Ministry of HRD IP Chair at NUJS.

The aim of these is to prepare a repository of material and discussions on intellectual property and technology laws to aid not only students, but also academicians and interested persons, in engaging in these fields.
