Scholarships and Prizes 2008:
BBG (British Brands Group) Dissertation Prize
The prize is awarded annually for the best dissertation or thesis submitted as part of any postgraduate degree in Law (BCL, M.Jur, M.Phil, M.St, M.Litt, or D.Phil) on a subject broadly connected with the law or practice of trade marks, unfair competition, or branding, as judged by a panel comprising one member of the Faculty of Law, and one intellectual property lawyer, appointed by the chairman of the faculty board. The value of the prize is £500 to the student, plus £250 to the library of the student's college. The prize may not be awarded more than once to any one student.
To be considered, dissertations must be of a sufficient standard to merit the award and this will normally be of a standard to at least warrant a distinction. To be considered for the award, the student should make an application to the Academic Administrator of the Faculty of Law, St Cross Building, St Cross Road, Oxford OX1 3UL. The application should be made in the academic year that the dissertation or thesis is submitted for the relevant degree or the year in which the degree is granted, and should be received by the Academic Administrator of the Faculty before 31 July in that year. Any queries regarding applications or suitability for application should, in the first place, be addressed to the Academic Administrator of the Law Faculty.
