Upcoming Events:

With classes now well under way, we thought we’d take a moment to preview upcoming events and opportunities this semester.

VJOLT Open House

On February 11, 2014 (5:00 pm to 8:00 pm), the Virginia Journal of Law and Technology (VJOLT) will be hosting an open house at its office in SL149 in preparation for journal tryouts. Feel free to stop by, ask questions, and learn more about UVa’s IP journal.

IP Scholarship Opportunities and Competitions

The American Intellectual Property Law Education Foundation (AIPLEF) currently has two opportunities:

1. The Sidley B. Williams, Jr. IP Law Scholarship ($10,000 per year for 3 years) has a deadline of March 14, 2014.

Additionally, the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) is offering the Robert C. Watson writing competition ($2,000 award). The submission deadline is June 30, 2014.

If you would like more details on these scholarships/competitions, Stephanie placed informational posters on the bulletin boards that sit to the left of the bookstore in Slaughter.

More to Come…

We are currently working on firm-specific information sessions and receptions for students interested working at IP boutiques. More details to follow once dates are solidified, so stay tuned.
