Robert C. Watson Award

AIPLA has sponsored this student competition for many years to encourage interest in intellectual property issues. Students are encouraged to submit articles on a subject relating to the protection of intellectual property.

Judges consider the merit of the article as a contribution to the knowledge respecting intellectual property and the extent to which it displays original and creative thought or information not previously written or published by an author. For more information on how to enter, please click here.  

The award is presented each October during the AIPLA Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.

Submission Deadline: June 30, 2017
