Invitation to Submit
The Intellectual Property and Technology
Law Review (IPTLRev)
invites members of the bench,
bar, and academic communities
to submit articles on any intellectual property law-related topic. IPTLRev is published twice each year, in the
Fall and in the Spring, and is comprised of essays, legal articles, public administration articles, and current
public law and policy issues. In particular, we prefer analysis of new laws, cases, rulings, regulations and areas
of intellectual property in which the author presents his or her opinion concerning the validity, significance
and/or impact of the question at issue, along with innovative ideas or strategies.
IPTLRev accepts articles in electronic forms only (e-mail attachment or on a 3-1/2 inch disk) in one of the following
formats: Microsoft Word (preferred), WordPerfect, or Rich Text Format (RTF). Graphics should be submitted in Visio

and general questions of style please follow the ALWD Citation Manual and The Chicago Manual Of Style (14th ed.
