2011 Allen J. Hoover Memorial Award
The DePaul College of Law Center for Intellectual Property Law & Information Technology (CIPLIT) is accepting applications for the 2011 Allen J. Hoover Memorial Award.
The family of Allen J. Hoover and the law firm of Wood Phillips created this $5,000 award in memory of the late Allen J. Hoover, who earned his law degree from DePaul in 1965. This award will be given to a May, 2011, graduating DePaul JD student who is expected to make the greatest contribution to the practice of intellectual property law as determined by the College of Law. The award will be presented by the firm at a reception held at the College of Law.
Students who wish to be considered for this award must submit the following:
- A current resume
- A copy of your unofficial transcript
