Application deadline for Chicago IP Colloquium Fellowships is November 6.
We are pleased to announce the opening for applications to be a fellow in the Chicago Intellectual Property Colloquium, a joint program between Chicago-Kent College of Law and Loyola University Chicago School of Law. Each spring, we host six nationally renowned intellectual property scholars who present and discuss their current research projects before intellectual property faculty from Chicago-area law schools, prominent intellectual property practitioners and selected students from Chicago-Kent and Loyola ("Chicago IP Colloquium Fellows").
These presentations usually take place every other Tuesday (with exceptions for the schools' spring breaks) during the spring semester from 4:10 - 5:50 p.m., with the location alternating between Chicago-Kent and Loyola. The complete schedule is on the Chicago IP Colloquium Web site.
Preparation sessions for the speakers are held on the opposite Tuesdays from 4:15 - 5:35 p.m.
(taking into account spring break). The prep sessions are held jointly with Chicago-Kent and Loyola via teleconference, so students at the respective law schools need not travel for the prep sessions themselves.
Note that participating in the Colloquium is equivalent to having a class on Tuesdays from 4:10 - 5:50 p.m.
Please take note of this fact to avoid a potential conflict. Fellows are expected to attend all prep sessions and presentations.
J.D. students who have completed at least one full year at Chicago-Kent or Loyola by fall 2006 are eligible; in other words, 2Ls, 3Ls and 4Ls are eligible. Students pursuing LL.M. degrees are also eligible. Importantly, the deadline to apply is 6 p.m., Monday, November 6, 2006. The application form is available at: www.chicagoip.com/ColloquiumFellowshipApplication2007.pdf. Additional participant information is available at: www.chicagoip.com/FellowsParticipation.html.
Applications should be submitted to Professor Dinwoodie via e-mail at GDinwood@kentlaw.edu or by placing a completed application in his mailbox on the second floor of Chicago-Kent.
More detailed information, such as this year's scholars and topics, are available on the Chicago IP Colloquium Web site.
We hope you will apply -- it is a tremendous opportunity for IP students to explore cutting-edge issues in the law and to engage with leading scholars and practitioners in the field.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact Professor Tim Holbrook or Professor Graeme Dinwoodie.
