The IPLC is home to the Intellectual Property Honors Program. Under its auspices, selected entering St. John’s Law students who plan to pursue intellectual property practice receive an annual tuition stipend of $10,000to fund their studies, as well as special opportunities to engage in academic endeavors related to their field of interest for their full three years at the Law School.
Each year, the NYIPLA selects one law school to receive this $10,000 scholarship. The law school then awards it to one student on the IP faculty’s recommendation and based on selective criteria. This year's winner is Ashana Nandram, '18.
"The Jan Jancin Award is the highest honor that the leading national bar associations bestow on an intellectual property law student each year,” said Professor Jeremy Sheff, who nominated Sarah for the award.
