Giuseppina D’AgostinoProf. Giuseppina D’Agostino is the Founder and Director of IP Osgoode, the IP Intensive Program, and the IP Osgoode Innovation Clinic, the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the IPilogue, the Deputy Editor of the Intellectual Property Journal, and an Associate Professor at Osgoode Hall Law School.

We are thrilled to welcome our students and colleagues back to a new and exciting year at IP Osgoode! One month ago, we anticipated being able to greet all of you in person. Although we have to wait a little longer, we are glad to continue virtually working with you and building IP engagement and interaction in York University and beyond.

As students look for ways to get involved and learn more about IP over the next year, we would like to make a few recommendations:

Intellectual Property Law and Technology Intensive Program (IP Intensive) - Fall 2022

The IP Intensive is a unique program that gives 3L students practical, experiential education in a workplace setting for an entire term in lieu of being in the classroom. Our students gain valuable practical experience which will assist them in obtaining employment after law school, and some of our students’ research in the program is published in the Intellectual Property Journal (IPJ).

We invite all 1L and 2L Osgoode students to join IP Osgoode at Osgoode’s Information Session for all Clinical Education and Intensive Programs on Wednesday, 12 January 2022 from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm. You can also contact us directly at iposgoode@osgoode.yorku.ca.

If you want to read more about the different placement organizations and the students’ personal experiences in the IP Intensive then please visit IP Osgoode’s website and subscribe to IP Osgoode’s weekly e-newsletter, the IPIGRAM. Our Fall 2021 students’ blogs will be published on the IPilogue over the coming weeks, but you can find past reflections here.

Apply online through the MyOsgoode portal by Monday, 24 January 2022 at 4:00 pm.


Our intellectual property law and technology blog will be recruiting IPilogue Writers for the Winter term. IPilogue Writers contribute one blog article biweekly for publication. Further details about joining the team will be available on Friday.

As always, the IPilogue accepts guest submissions on an ongoing basis. Learn more about publishing articles on our blog here: https://www.iposgoode.ca/ipilogue/contribute-to-the-ipilogue-today/

We thank you all for being a part of the IP Osgoode community and look forward to breaking new ground in 2022.
