Working in Copyright: What We Learnt in Three Months
The study of law is a strange thing; for the most part, at least here in Canada, it involves poring over massive amounts of material — case law, legal analyses, thoughts of scholars on jurisprudence, philosophy, and of course, attending hours upon hours of lectures outlining everything you’ve missed on first reading of said tomes and e-tomes. That law school has a general reputation of being drier than sawdust is not always inaccurate, it would seem.
Naturally then, when we had the chance to gain some real-world, practical experience in intellectual property law, we jumped on it. What follows are our accounts on the people we met, the things we did, and most importantly, what we learnt in our 3 months away from classes.
Tracy Ayodele was placed at Canadian Heritage, in the Copyright Policy Branch. Here’s her account: bit.ly/153aU9F.
