In late 2007, Chicago lost an important member of our IP community, Mark Banner.  Chicago’s Richard Linn Inn of Court, of which Banner as a founding Master, has established a scholarship offering second and third year law students $5,000 toward their fall semester tuition.  Applications (click here to download one) are due by October 10.  Here are the scholarship criteria:

  • Commitment to ethics, civility and professionalism;
  • Academic merit, both law school and other undergraduate or graduate work;
  • Written and oral communication skills, including a telephone interview;
  • Leadership and community involvement; and
  • Member of a historically underrepresented group in IP.
