2012 Patent Law Interview Program

Registration ends today, March 5, 2012!

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, rising 2L and 3L students, and students in Intellectual Property LLM programs. 

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.  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.

For more information on the program, please refer to the program website at http://www.luc.edu/law/career/patent_students.html. You will see a “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 Florida Coastal School of Law on the registration form’s drop down menu of law schools.
