2012 Loyola Patent Law Interview Program - Chicago, IL
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. The job fair is open to students expected to graduate in 2013 and 2014.
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.
Online student registration for this year's Patent Law Interview Program will begin on Monday, February 13 and close on Monday, March 5. On February 13, a "Register Now" link will appear 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 Duquesne University 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. Please direct any questions about the program to the Patent Program Liaison in our office, Maria Comas at firstname.lastname@example.org or (412) 396-6279.
