The Southeastern Intellectual Property Job Fair (SIPJF) is an initiative founded by the Intellectual Property Advisory Board, which is an alumni group associated with the Georgia State University College of Law. The fair is managed and executed by the Georgia State University College of Law Career Services Office. Many members of the Founders group are very active in Atlanta’s IP community, working in the city’s most well known companies and firms. SIPJF has been made possible by a joint effort of student volunteers, alumni, and the Georgia State University College of Law Career Services Office.

Loyola University Chicago School of Law is hosting the 2014 Patent Law Interview Program on Thursday, July 31 and Friday, August 1 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 125 employers, 190 law schools, and 1,700 law students from across the country participated in the program. The program is entirely pre-selected, which means that students submit resumes and transcripts to bid on interviews with the employers they are interested in, and employers then review the materials 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 Loyola Patent Program website at: http://www.luc.edu/law/career/patent_students.html.
Online student registration for this year’s Patent Law Interview Program will begin on Monday, February 10 and close on Monday, March 3. On February 10, online registration will open at https://patentlawregistration.luc.edu/lawstudents/Default.aspx. 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.
There is a non-refundable $35 dollar registration fee which you must pay by credit card to complete your online registration. Please have your credit card ready when you register.
Once you have registered, the program staff will communicate with you directly via email to the address that you entered when registering for the program. Please direct any questions about the program to the Patent Program Liaison in our office, Lisa Crouch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
