Gowlings IPilogue Prize
Gowlings Best Blog in IP Law and Technology Prize
The prizes were pioneered in Professor Giuseppina D’Agostino’s Intellectual Property class in Fall 2007 and have been generously sponsored each year since then by Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP. Four prizes in total are awarded each year to full-time Osgoode Hall Law School students. In each academic semester, there is one prize for the best post and one prize for the best comment.
All Osgoode students are invited to submit entries to the IPilogue, which will be considered automatically for the prizes. All blog entries, whether submitted as a course requirement or outside the rubric of a course, will be considered, except for those submitted by IPilogue Editors.
The submission deadline for consideration for the prizes is the last day of classes for the academic year (e.g., for the 2013-2014 academic year, it is Friday, April 11, 2014). Please submit your blog post to email@example.com and comment on an existing IPilogue post by the last day of classes.
The winning blog posts will be featured on the IP Osgoode website. Recipients will also receive a $500 award, will be announced at Convocation and will receive a permanent notation on their official Osgoode transcript.
