Wake Forest Journal of Business and Intellectual Property Law Fall 2017 Newsletter

JBIPL Fall 2017 Newsletter

Welcome to the first quarterly update of the 2017-2018 school year. As WFU law students are settling back into Winston Salem, we wish to congratulate our graduating members, welcome the newest members to the JBIPL staff, and recap the Journal's most recent successes.

In an effort to kickstart a more comprehensive alumni network, the new JBIPL Board has created a short survey for alumni to fill out. Please consider taking 5 minutes to complete this so that JBIPL can have your information moving forward. Ideally, with your responses, an alumni sector will be added onto the JBIPL website. We really want to keep our subscribers and our alumni informed. Additionally, we are hoping to provide a network of contacts for each Journal member to easily access following their time at WFU law.

We look forward to hearing from you and keeping in touch. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to our Business & Online Editor, Emily Burke at burkec15@wfu.edu.

JBIPL Welcomes the 2017-2018 Board and New Members

JBIPL wishes to congratulate the Class of 2017. We look forward to following your success in the years to come. As the newest wave of alumni, we hope you wish to remain up-to-date on the Journal's progress.

2017 Highlights

Matthew Silverstein’s (JD ’17) JBIPL article judged ‘one of the best’ this year by IPL Review

Silverstein’s article, “Pro-Football, Inc. V. Blackhorse and the First Amendment: Does Classifying Trademarks as Government Speech Undermine Free Speech Protections?,” will be reprinted in the 2017 edition of the Intellectual Property Law Review, according to Karen Tripp, an editor of the Review. The Review is an annually published anthology by Thomson Reuters (West).

Silverstein’s article was originally printed in the Fall 2016 issue of the Wake Forest Journal of Business and Intellectual Property Law.
