As announced last week, SpicyIP is forming a new IP case law team to provide quick summaries of recent IP cases and is inviting applications from law students and lawyers for the same. The deadline for applications is October 31, 2016.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for a total of 3-4 law students/lawyers who can prepare quick summaries of about 3-4 IP orders/judgments each per week for a minimum period of six months. Please note that the process for selection will be a fairly rigorous one, as we are keen to only bring on board those who are very proficient in legal research and writing.
