2012 Patent Law Interview Program – Bidding Opens Monday, February 13th!

Loyola University Chicago School of Law is hosting the 2012 Patent Law Interview Program on Thursday, August 2 and Friday, August 3 in Chicago,Illinois. This is a nationwide interview program that targets patent law employers, and rising 2L and 3L students.

Last year, roughly 100 employers, 180 law schools and 1,600 law students from across the country participated in the program. The program is entirely pre-selected, which means that students submit resumes and bid on interviews with the employers they are interested in, and employers then review the resumes of the students who bid on them and select the students they wish to interview at the program. Last year, approximately half of the participating students were selected for interviews.

Students with undergraduate or graduate degrees in engineering or a technical science should consider registering for the program. Please keep in mind that a vast majority of employers participating in the program are seeking patent bar eligible students.

For more information on the program, please refer to the program website.

Online student registration will begin on Monday, February 13 and close on Monday, March 5. On February 13, a “Register Now” link will appear on the 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.

Miami Law 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 Career Development Office, Karen Warren.
