We are now accepting submissions for our fifth annual writing challenge. The winner from each category will receive a prize of $1000 (CAD), publication on the IP Osgoode website, and consideration for publication in the Canadian Intellectual Property Review and/or the Intellectual Property Journal. The deadline to submit is 5pm, Monday July 1, 2013. Submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are looking for thoughtful and well-researched papers on intellectual property and public policy scholarship to enhance our discussion. We encourage a broad range of perspectives and topics can be from within the various categories of intellectual property law including patents, trade-marks, industrial design and copyright.
There are three categories for entrants this year:
- Law student category (LL.B, J.D., BCL, and LL.L students)
- Graduate student category (LL.M, S.J.D. and PhD students)
- Professional category (legal and business professionals who have been practicing 7 years or less, including patent agents and trade-mark agents)
We are pleased to announce that, new to this year’s challenge, the set topic for the professional category is a case note on an intellectual property related decision issued after January 1, 2012.
