    Congratulations to all the winners! I anxiously await the release of the final papers for my reading, because the topics alone look fascinating.

    I am disappointed that every winner is associated with a law school. I was hoping to see some judges, practitioners, or USPTO officials among the winners, for their unique perspectives. Perhaps too few non-academics entered (or just had poor submissions), but I would strongly consider setting aside a slot or two for these folks, just like you did for law students. If you want ideas to be consumed and used outside of academia, it may be helpful to at least preserve an appearance that non-academic views are welcomed and valuable.

      Though we received more than 100 entries, we did not receive any submissions from judges or PTO officials. We did receive many excellent submissions from practicing attorneys and other professionals, including several that were near the top of our rankings and were “next in line” for Prizes had there been funding for additional awards. We welcome the views of the bar, and hope that attorneys and other professionals will attend and share their views at the conference on February 18.
