The Fellowship promotes excellent academic research about IP and related rights in the innovative and creative communities. The program consists of a series of three (3) invitation-only meetings over the course of a year. Fellows are required to attend the entirety of all three roundtables, and attendance is a material condition of a Fellowship. Over the course of these meetings, Edison Fellows work under the guidance of Distinguished Commentators and with each other to turn paper ideas into polished manuscripts publishable in law reviews or other academic journals. The Fellowship is designed primarily for tenure-track professors and for lawyers and Ph.D. graduates interested in academic positions focusing on research in IP, creativity, and innovation. C-IP2 also considers applications from recently tenured academics and from practitioners interested in writing about IP, creativity, or innovation policy.
The Center for Intellectual Property x Innovation Policy (C-IP2) at George Mason University – Antonin Scalia Law School invites applications for a non-resident fellowship program. The Thomas Edison Innovation Law and Policy Fellowship program is designed to develop rigorous scholarship on intellectual property (IP), creativity, and innovation law and policy.
