2L Theresa Stadheim Wins Prizes
for IP Writing

SEPTEMBER 24, 2008—Second-year Law School student Theresa Stadheim ('10) won two writing awards in the Ninth Annual Intellectual Property Writing Competition sponsored by Foley & Lardner LLP.

Her article entitled "Rambus, N-Data, and the FTC: Balancing Patent Holder Rights and Consumer Protection in Standards-Setting Organizations" won the $5,000 grand prize for a second-year student, and "How KSR v. Teleflex Will Affect Patent Prosecution in the Electrical and Mechanical Arts" won an honorable mention.

Submissions are required to address an intellectual property topic and are judged on originality, research, content, and contributions to the law and practice. The competition is limited to first- and second-year students enrolled at an AALS-accredited law school. Five prize-winning papers are selected: a grand prize for a first-year student, another for a second-year student, and three honorable mentions.

Stadheim will fly to Washington, D.C., compliments of Foley & Lardner, to receive her awards at a ceremony on Oct. 3.
