The Richard Linn American Inn of Court is now offering a newly established scholarship for law students in honor of our past partner, Mark T. Banner. The new scholarship is a tribute to Mark, sponsored by the Richard Linn American Inn of Court.
Inns of Court are part of a national movement promoting civility, ethics and professionalism in law. Mark was a founder of the Linn Inn, in Chicago, named for U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit Judge Richard Linn.
The award is open to any student who demonstrates the fundamental mission of the Inn and the qualities important to Mark — a commitment to IP law, ethics, civility, and professionalism. The award also has an aspect of seeking to assist those in historically underrepresented groups in the intellectual property law field.
The scholarship was created with the help of Charles Shifley, shareholder of Banner & Witcoff and President of the Richard Linn American Inn of Court.
Banner & Witcoff is proud to be the founding contributor to this scholarship.
