Office of Technology Development - UofL Needs Student Volunteer

The Public Service Office has been contacted by the Office of Technology Development here on campus. Their office is reviewing the University's IP Policy and would like a student volunteer to help the office digest current policy and seek out the policies from other universities. A working knowledge of intellectual property (e.g. completed the IP Survey class) would be helpful, but not required. The position will require culling and analyzing IP policies and languages from other universities and comparing them to the policy at UofL. The student will them provide some analysis such as supplying feedback as to which schools offer policies UofL may want to adopt and looking for gaps in UofL's current policy. The project will take approximately 30 hours and it is hoped the student can completed the work by late September. If you are interested in this project, please send a resume to Jina Scinta at jina.scinta@louisville.edu.
