Aynes, Richard L. Writing Competiton Award Endowment
The Richard L. Aynes Writing Competition Award Endowment was established by The University of Akron School of Law Intellectual Property Advisory Council in 2007 in honor of Dean Aynes on the occasion of his retirement as dean and return to the faculty. Dean Aynes served as dean of the School of Law for 12 years. One of his greatest legacies is the establishment of the Center for Intellectual Property Law and Technology. His vision to build and foster partnerships with alumni, friends, and the greater IP legal community forever influenced the future growth of the field of IP law in Akron and beyond.
In honor of his transformational vision for the center and his keen interest in constitutional law, The Richard L. Aynes Writing Competition Award Endowment is established to support an annual award to a UA law student who authors the best paper on some constitutional aspect of intellectual property law. Paper requirements will be set forth by the director of the Center for Intellectual Property Law and Technology and Richard L. Aynes. The award will be given in the spring semester.
The award recipient shall be selected by the director of the Center for Intellectual Property Law and Technology and Richard L. Aynes, or their designees. The award amount will be determined as per the guidelines of the fund as established with The University of Akron Foundation.
