oldest publishing intellectual property law journal in America, the Journal of
Patent & Trademark Office Society (JPTOS) provides a forum dedicated to the
discussion of legal and technical subjects related to patent, trademark, and
copyright laws. JPTOS boasts a broad and diverse readership that includes
practicing attorneys, judges, and law professors. By instituting a
writing competition, the Journal seeks to encourage innovative student
scholarship on current topics in intellectual property law, increase student
involvement and build stronger ties with Mid-Atlantic law schools.
enrolled JD and LLM students are welcome to submit a paper on any topical issue
regarding U.S. or international intellectual property law. To be
considered, students may submit their papers to the Editor-in-Chief throughout
the year, but no later than March 15, 2016. The Editor-in-Chief will
review all submissions and select a group of finalists for publication.
The Board of Governors will then choose a winner from the finalists based on a
variety of factors, including timeliness of the subject matter, thoroughness of
research and analysis, and clarity of writing style. The winner will receive
$1000 cash prize and an invitation to give a talk about their paper to the
Society at a later date.
