Finnegan Prizes in Intellectual Property Law

The Finnegan Prizes are sponsored by the law firm of Finnegan Henderson, which has long been a leader in IP practice and a friend to the law school. These prizes are awarded every year to the Juris Doctor or LLM students who produce the best publishable articles on Intellectual Property law. Each winner receives a Dean’s Certificate and a monetary award. While the 2020 competition will not be completed until the end of the summer, the 2019 competition included two winners that graduate this year.

Carol Conroy won third place in the 2019 competition for her paper entitled: “Where from Here?  The Outstanding Questions Following Sandoz v. Amgen Regarding the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act ‘Patent Dance.” Carol earned her Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion from the University of Georgia. She was also the articles editor for The Federal Circuit Bar Journal.

With Gratitude

Thank you to all of my family and friends for supporting and loving me unconditionally every step along the way!

"I...don’t run away from my double X chromosomes. I do not dress like a man, I do not talk like a man, and I do not think like a man. I empathize with my clients. I put myself in their shoes and learn their business. I do not judge them. I do not think about what the law is or should be. I focus only on how to win."
