According to surveys compiled by Washington & Lee University, in 2008 the IPLJ was the number one ranked entertainment, arts and sports law journal, and the number sixth ranked intellectual property law journal. IPLJ articles have been read into the Congressional Record, as well as cited in the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and in amicus briefs to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The IPLJ publishes four times each academic year, and IPLJ articles are available in full on Westlaw and Lexis.
Staff members play an integral role in the journal’s publication, working closely with the journal’s board in editing Articles, Notes and Comments. Staff members are strongly encouraged to write and publish a Note or Comment of their own, and are actively supported by the editorial board throughout this process.
In addition to publishing, the IPLJ conducts several special events for practitioners and staff members:
The IPLJ chooses its staff members on the basis of their submissions to the Unified Writing Competition, held in the spring, and an optional statement of interest. Please feel free to pick up a copy of our latest edition outside of our office in Room 021, or to stop by with any questions you may have about the IPLJ.
