IP Work-in-Progress Colloquium for Chinese Scholars

University of Washington School of Law will host the First IP Work-in-Progress Colloquium for Chinese scholars on May 7-8, 2015 in Seattle. "Work-in-progress" events involve pairing the author of a draft paper with a commentator with appropriate subject matter expertise. All participants are expected to present a draft work and to provide feedback on the draft work of another participant. The goal of the Colloquium is to provide a training exercise for participants for the process of academic writing--from reviewing paper proposals to giving comments to drafts from our experienced faculty members.

The committee members will choose the most promising 10-15 proposals and invite their authors to submit full‐fledged draft papers. These scholars will attend the IP Work-in-Progress Colloquium in Seattle and present their papers to senior scholars from the U.S., Asia, and Europe to receive their feedback. UW School of Law will also offer research and writing clinics for invited authors regarding how to write U.S. style law review articles and submit them to U.S. journals.
