Journals. The South African Intellectual Property Law Journal (SAIPLJ) is calling for submissions for its next issue. If you have something suitable up your sleeve, the date for submission is provisionally fixed at 30 April 2014. If you'd just like to speak to someone about appropriate topics, or want to find out more about this peer-reviewed journal, which is still in its relative infancy, email Lee-Ann Tong at email@example.com or Afro-IP blogger Caroline Ncube at firstname.lastname@example.org. Meanwhile another publication that is still in its infancy, The Trademark Lawyer, has just produced its most recent issue. For further information, click here.
To help law students make their way to the Annual Meeting, we have a scholarship program that provides a complimentary registration to the meeting and up to $500 travel reimbursement [is that US dollars or Hong Kong dollars, wonders Merpel]. Interested students should complete the attached application form and submit an essay for consideration. We would greatly appreciate it if you could share this information with your student members.
