Co-Curricular Activities in IP:
Intellectual Property Association: The IPA is an active student group that arranges lectures and networking opportunities with IP lawyers and scholars.
2012 – 2013 IP Association Executive Board:
Caleb Bean, EJ Henricks, Rajat Khanna, Sherry Lin and Abe Shanehsaz
Intellectual Property Externships: Currently the Center offers externship opportunities for upper-level IP students during the fall, spring and summer terms with a number of different host companies/government agencies around the country.
Current IP Externship opportunities include:
Intellectual Property Moot Court: IP students take part in the Giles Sutherland Rich Memorial Moot Court Competition in March (hosted by the American Intellectual Property Law Association) as well as the Saul Lefkowitz Moot Court Competition (hosted by the International Trademark Association) in February. This year we also sent a team to the International Intellectual Property Law Moot at University of Oxford. The program is looking to expand in coming years to include additional competitions in the US and abroad.
IP Theory: This peer-edited, online IP law publication is hosted by the IP program at Maurer. It is neither law journal nor blog; it is a different sort of publication designed to occupy a niche between the two.
2012 – 2013 IP Theory Editorial Board:
Francesca Cardillo, Kevin Domanico, Jennifer Fujawa, Jason Goodman (Editor-in-Chief), Natalie Jones, Alex Lewis and Kassi Officer
