International Trademark Association Opportunities

The International Trademark Association (INTA) is a global association of trademark owners and professionals dedicated to supporting trademarks and related intellectual property in order to protect consumers and to promote fair and effective commerce. INTA offers a number of opportunities for law students interested in trademark law to get involved, including moot court and writing competitions and informational webcasts.

Registration for the Saul Lefkowitz Moot Court Competition is now open through October 18. You can read competition materials and register here.

The Ladas Memorial Award Competition is now accepting papers. The winner receives $2,000 and publication in The Trademark Reporter, INTA’s legal journal.

U.S. Trademark Basics webcast is now $25 for law students – regular price is $195 for members, $295 for non-members. The program provides a good overview perspective and insight into issues that trademark practitioners deal with regularly.  Interested students who are not INTA members should contact Carin Diep-Dixon, Senior Academic Program Coordinator, at
