Call for Papers: 2017/18 Intellectual Property Edition, Akron Law Review

Posted by Nick Bagnolo, community karma 27

The Akron Law Review invites papers regarding any and all issues related to the field of intellectual property. Each spring, the Akron Law Review publishes a separate edition dedicated to the practice of intellectual property law, known as the Intellectual Property Edition. Past publications have covered topics ranging from patents and trademarks, to IP licensing, copyrights, and a host of other IP related issues. We encourage the submission of all articles which may serve to have an impact on the field and practice of intellectual property. This issue of the Intellectual Property Edition will be published in the Akron Law Review in the spring of the 2017-2018 Academic Year.

We here at the Akron Law Review are very excited for this year’s IP Edition. A number of top scholars in the field of intellectual property will be gracing the pages of our publication this coming spring. Among those who will be publishing in the 2017/18 IP Edition are:

·         Mark McKenna, Notre Dame Law School

·         Scott Kieff, George Washington University Law School

·         Patrick Goold, Harvard Law School

·         Janewa Osei-Tutu, Florida International University College of Law

·         Srividhya Ragavan, Texas A&M University School of Law

·         Dalindyebo Shabalala, Case Western Reserve University School of Law

·         Saurabh Vishnubhakat, Texas A&M University School of Law

In addition to the above list of authors, there is still room for yet a few more articles in this year’s IP Edition. We invite anyone who wishes to join this prestigious list of scholars to submit an article for consideration in this year’s publication. 

The Akron Law Review strives to publish timely, high quality articles.
