The competition is jointly organized by Altacit Global and The Virginia Journal of Law and Technology (VJOLT) in order to create awareness and sensitize academic/student community on Intellectual Property [IP] issues. The competition is open to Law Students of Indian and American Universities, Colleges and Institutions.

Altacit Global and the Virginia Journal of Law and Technology (VJOLT) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for organizing the competition on an annual basis for three years.

The Topic for 2009 is “The varying treatment of patentable subject matter”. ( The paper should be a scholarly analysis of the topic and not just a global survey of patentable subject matter.)
An Editorial Board of distinguished Intellectual Property academicians and professionals has been constituted to select the winning entries. Winning entries will be considered for publication in the Virginia Journal of Law and Technology at the discretion of VJOLT.
