Trademark Law Writing Competition

The International Trademark Association, INTA, announces the

2008-2009 Ladas Memorial Award Competition

Paper Submission by January 16, 2009.

The Ladas Memorial Award Competition is open to all students, practitioners
and academics interested in trademarks and trademark law.

Sponsored by INTA and supported by the law firm of Ladas & Parry LLP, the Ladas Memorial Award was established in memory of the distinguished practitioner and author Stephen P. Ladas. The Award is presented once a year in two author categories, Student and Professional. In each category, the Award is given to the best paper on the subject of trademark law or a matter that directly relates to or affects trademarks.

The subject of the paper must be trademark law or a matter that directly relates to or affects trademarks. Eligible papers include both original unpublished manuscripts and published articles that are submitted or otherwise come to the attention of INTA by JANUARY 16, 2009.


The Student and Professional winner is recognized by a US $2,000 cash award, and a set of Dr. Ladas's three-volume treatise. Award winners will be invited to attend the 2009 INTA Gala in Seattle, Washington at INTA's 131st Annual Meeting, where they are recognized before the outstanding volunteers and leaders of the Association. The Student winner will receive a travel and lodging stipend of $US 1,000 to attend the Gala.

Winning papers will be posted on the Academics section of INTA's website and published in the September -- October Issue (Issue 5) of The Trademark Reporter®, INTA's legal journal.
