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:

  1. Law student category (LL.B, J.D., BCL, and LL.L students)
  2. Graduate student category (LL.M, S.J.D. and PhD students)
  3. 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.
