This is a great opportunity for summer associates, so please remind them!
BPLA is once again holding its annual Writing Competition. Law school students are encouraged to submit papers relating to topics involving intellectual property law. Judges will consider the merits of each paper based on: (i) contribution to knowledge respecting intellectual property law; and (ii) the extent to which it displays original and creative thought or information not previously published or available. The requirements for eligibility are outlined below.
