Chicago-Kent Journal of Intellectual Property

http://jip.kentlaw.edu
Week of October 3, 2005

Last chance to join the Journal this semester.

For anyone who is interested in joining the Journal of Intellectual Property for the Fall semester: you must attend a training session either this Friday or next Monday. Information is below, and will be in the Event Calendar shortly.

Mandatory training starts this Friday!

Training sessions for Fall entry into the Journal will be held as follows:

     Friday, October 14 at 2:35 PM, in room TBD.   (Westlaw training)

     Monday, October 17 at 5:00 PM, in room TBD. (Lexis training)

Check back here by Thursday for the room locations. The training sessions will each last about one hour. The first half-hour or so will be devoted to learning how to use the online search systems to assist you in conducting Intellectual Property research. The remainder of the time will cover the way Journal editors edit submissions.

After the training, prospective editors will be given a short (6 page) take-home editing assignment, which will be due in a few weeks. Current Associate Editors must also take this quiz, because we want everyone to have the same understanding of the editing process.

New logo still needed.

The Journal still needs a logo -- a mark that we can use to identify ourselves and build brand recognition in the IP community. Any student graphic artists or designers who want to help out should contact Dave Blau at the Journal email.

I would prefer to have one of us create the logo, rather than spending money on a contractor.

Contacting the Journal

If you need to contact the Journal, please send email to journal@kentlaw.edu. If you have any general questions about the Journal, or any compliments, suggestions, or complaints, please direct them to the Editor-in-Chief, Dave Blau. If you have questions about submissions to the Journal, or if you are having problems receiving Journal notices, please direct your mail to the Managing Editor, Moshe Wilensky.
