2015 Patent Law Interview Program Register By March 9 July 30 & 31 in Chicago

Loyola University Chicago School of Law is hosting the 2015 Patent Law Interview Program on Thursday, July 30 and Friday, July 31 in Chicago, Illinois. Online student registration for this year's Patent Law Interview Program is now open and will close on Monday, March 9, http://www.luc.edu/law/career/patent_students.html . Late registrations will not be accepted. This is a nationwide interview program that targets patent law employers, rising 2L and 3L students, and students in Intellectual Property LLM programs. Last year roughly 120 patent law employers, 190 accredited law schools, and 1,700 law students from across the country participated in the program (approximately half of the participating students were selected for interviews). The program offers qualified law students (engineering or technical science degree holders; you do not need to be patent bar eligible to register, although the vast majority of employers participating in the program are seeking patent bar eligible students) from across the country the opportunity to interview with patent law firms, as well as law firms, corporations, and government agencies with patent law departments. Washington University Law students have been successful in securing positions through this program in the past. The list of employers who interviewed at the 2014 program can be found on the Web site.
