We are pleased to announce a call for applications for a number of exciting opportunities with IP Osgoode including IPilogue Editors and IP Osgoode Innovation Clinic Fellows. See below for more information.
Call for IPilogue Editors
Tuesday, September 16, 2014; send application documents via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The IPilogue is the first blog of its kind populated with entries from student editors at Osgoode Hall Law School and other law schools across Canada and around the world, as well as postings from expert bloggers from across the globe.
The blog contains comments and thoughts about current pressing intellectual property, technology, privacy and related legal issues and has a wide-ranging following in Canada and internationally from government, industry, academia and from other expert groups and members of the general public.
Many student posts have enabled greater employment opportunities for students, sparked informed debates on various issues, and led to publication in leading journals and a following in a number of law and policy forums.
IPilogue Editor (8-10 available)
September 2014 – April 2015, with a possibility to continue for Summer 2015
Call for Clinical Fellows
Tuesday September 16, 2014; send application documents via email to email@example.com
The IP Osgoode Innovation Clinic is a needs-based innovation-to-market legal clinic staffed by volunteer law students and is the first of its kind in Canada. We are seeking law students from Osgoode Hall Law School to provide legal services to under-resourced start-up organizations or entrepreneurs requiring assistance in their innovation and commercialization activities.
It is expected that the majority of the work done by students will relate to patent law. The remaining time would be spent working on other IP-related needs as they arise, (e.g. assistance with trade-mark, copyright, or trade secret issues). The students’ work during the placement may include:
- Reviewing business transactions involving IP
- Assisting with various steps in the patent prosecution process (i.e.: conducting prior art searches, reviewing patent specifications, etc.)
- Performing freedom-to-operate and clearance searches
- Assisting with various steps in the trade-mark prosecution process
- Conducting legal research
