2011 Patent Law Interview Program – Registration Open

Loyola University Chicago School of Law is hosting the 2011 Patent Law Interview Program on Thursday, July 28 and Friday, July 29 in Chicago, Illinois.  This is a nationwide interview program that targets patent law employers, and rising 2L and 3L students. 

Each year roughly 1,500 law students register for the program, submit their resumes, and bid on interviews with the nation-wide employers that interest them. The program is entirely employer selected – which means that participating employers review the resumes submitted to them and choose the law students they are interested in interviewing at the program.  Roughly half of the students registered for the program are selected for interviews each year.

Students interested in patent law with undergraduate or graduate degrees in engineering or a technical science should consider registering for the program.  You do not need to be patent bar eligible to register, although the vast majority of employers seek patent bar eligible students.

For more information on the program, please refer to the program website at http://www.luc.edu/law/career/patent_students.html.

Online student registration is now open and will close on Monday, March 7.  To register, click on the “Register Now” link on the above web page.  At this stage of registration, you will only need to enter some basic information (you will upload your resume and bid on interviews later in the semester).  Please note that our school is listed alphabetically as “University of Miami School of Law” on the registration form’s drop down menu of law schools. 

We will be paying the $35 registration fee for our students, so you will not be charged anything when you register online.

Please direct any questions about the program to the Patent Program Liaison in the CDO, Karen Warren at kwarren@law.miami.edu.
