International Trademark Association announces online ADR competition for EU law students

The International Trademark Association (INTA) has announced that it is sponsoring an Alternative Dispute Resolution Online Competition to be held in April 2007. Registration is open to law students in the European Union.

According to INTA's web site:

This online competition is designed to increase the student’s use and understanding of ADR. Law students representing schools throughout the EU will exercise their negotiation, mediation and advocacy skills to resolve hypothetical trademark law disputes. Prizes will be awarded to the most effective advocate teams and the most effective mediator, based on evaluations by distinguished professionals from INTA’s ADR Committee.

The deadline for registering is October 1, 2006, and the competition gets underway in April 2007. Details may be found on INTA's web site.
