The AIPLA QJ is a publication of the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA), one of the largest private bars of intellectual property attorneys in the world, and is designed to promote an exchange of intellectual insight and debate on issues of intellectual property law.
The AIPLA Quarterly Journal enrollment is limited to those students who have successfully competed in the annual national writing competition conducted by the Journal and who have been selected as members of the Journal’s Publication Staff for their second and third years of law school. While the Journal is housed at George Washington’s law school in Washington, D.C., the competition is open to any 1L in any law school in the U.S. Any student from UNM who is selected for the Journal’s Publication Staff must work with a faculty advisor on site at UNM and must complete editing assignments as well as complete an article for publication. For additional information about the competition and the journal, see American Intellectual Property Law Association.
Note that only 1Ls can participate in the competition to serve on the staff of this national journal and that selections of staff members for the AIPLA QJ are made by the Journal’s editorial staff at George Washington University.
