IP Draughts has come across Professor MacQueen as an IP specialist who has contributed to several public projects in the IP field, most notably as a member of the Scottish Law Commission. He is delighted to see Prof MacQueen’s substantial contribution to IP scholarship recognised.
With that exception, it is slim pickings in the Birthday Honours for IP or technology transfer, or indeed for law. Leaving aside awards for law enforcement, and for civil servants involved in the law, the most notable entry that IP Draughts found when searching for “law” was an award for services to lawn bowls. Congratulations to Tony Allcock, former world champion.
