Intellectual Property Honors Program
The St. John’s Intellectual Property (“IP”) Honors Program offers selected entering St. John’s students who plan to pursue intellectual property practice an annual tuition stipend of $10,000 to fund their studies, as well as special opportunities to engage in academic endeavors related to their field of interest. Selected students will be designated as Intellectual Property Honors Scholars, and participate in the program for their full three years at St. John’s.
While at St. John’s, IP Honors Scholars will participate in a unified program under the supervision of the Director of the Intellectual Property Law Center, which includes guaranteed preferential access to limited-enrollment IP electives in 2L and 3L years, a faculty mentor who specializes in IP law, and a Career Development Officer with expertise in IP career options. In addition, beginning in the 1L year, IP Honors Scholars are invited to participate in the Intellectual Property Law Colloquium, a speaker series that brings prominent academics and practicing attorneys to St. John’s for interactive discussions on cutting-edge research and hot topics in IP law.
