Once a year, NautaDutilh will award the John J. Allen scholarship. This scholarship is meant to help a promising young lawyer further develop his/her knowledge of intellectual property law. The scholarship is open to applicants holding a Dutch Masters of Law degree who have an affinity for intellectual property law. The recipient may use the scholarship for an LL.M. program outside the Netherlands or a PhD program in the Netherlands or abroad in the area of intellectual property law.
The scholarship is named after NautaDutilh lawyer John Allen, who died on 17 July 2014 with his family in the MH17 air disaster. John Allen was a partner in the firm's IP/IT practice, with a particular focus on patent litigation and other technology-related matters. His expertise was highly praised and he was also a man of many talents outside the legal arena. He is deeply missed and the scholarship has been established in his memory. Using John's talent as in inspiration, we would like to help promising young people develop and become the best in the field of intellectual property law.
The application procedure for the John J. Allen Scholarship is currently closed.
