The Oxford Law Faculty congratulates Professor Vaver, Emeritus Professor of Intellectual Property & Information Technology Law, on being awarded the Pattishall Medal for excellence and innovation in teaching of subjects related to trademarks and trade identity, having been nominated by one of his former students.

Sponsored by the Pattishall firm and INTA, the Pattishall Medal was established in tribute to Beverly W. Pattishall, a pioneer in the development of trademark law in the United States, to recognize educators in the business and legal fields for outstanding instruction with respect to trademarks and trade identity. Accompanying the medal is a cash award of US $2,500.

On notification of this award, the Pattishall Medal Project Team stated:

    "Congratulations on your outstanding accomplishment. The high esteem in which your nominators hold you is a testament to your positive and important influence on them not only in your capacity as their former professor and fellow faculty, but also in your continuing role as a professional colleague and mentor."


The medal is presented every four years and when last awarded in 2008 was awarded to Professor Graeme Dinwoodie.
