Trade Secrets Institute Fellowship

Supporting the Next Generation of Trade Secrets Lawyers

The Trade Secrets Institute (TSI) awards paid fellowships to a few qualified students every year.

The TSI provides comprehensive coverage of key trade secret cases and legislative or regulatory initiatives throughout the U.S. and internationally via a newly created website and database, as well as in-depth analysis of important legal issues, decisions, legislation, regulatory initiatives, and the business matters at stake.

Fellows are required to enroll in a specially designated Trade Secrets class in the spring. In addition, fellows begin working closely with faculty members and practitioners in the summer prior to the award year, and continue in the fall to compile materials such as case law, legislation, and regulatory initiatives to include on the TSI’s website and database.

Eligibility & Selection Criteria
Applicants should have a strong academic record and excellent writing skills, and must be comfortable with technology.

Once selected, fellows are expected to make a significant contribution to the growth and maintenance of the TSI website and database and work closely with faculty members involved with the TSI.

Application Process
In their application materials, students should state their reasons for pursuing the fellowship and why they are good candidates. Applications are accepted in the spring prior to the fellowship award year.
