Olivia Radics, a third year UW Law student, won two recent honors for her article, “Renting out Sovereignty: The Use of Sovereign Immunity as a Sword and Shield in Patent Infringement Suits after St. Regis Mohawk Tribe v. Mylan.”
Radics received the Robert C. Watson Award, sponsored by the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA). Judges consider a submission's contribution to the field of intellectual property and the extent to which it displays original and creative thought or information. Radics will travel to the AIPLA Annual Meeting in October to receive the award.
Earlier this year, Radics's article also placed third in the Chief Justice John B. Doolin Writing Competition, sponsored by the Sovereignty Symposium, Inc. and the Supreme Court of Oklahoma. The competition is open to papers on any area of the law relating to Native Americans or other indigenous peoples.
At UW Law, Radics serves as editor-in-chief of the Wisconsin Law Review and as graduate research assistant for the Wisconsin Russia Project.
