2015 Loyola Patent Law Interview Program for rising 2Ls and 3Ls
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. This is a nationwide interview program that targets patent law employers, and rising 2L and 3L students. Last year roughly 125 employers, 190 law schools, and 1,500 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.
Online student registration for this year’s Patent Law Interview Program will open on Monday, Feb. 9 and will close on Monday, March 9.
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 California, Berkeley, School of Law on the registration form’s drop down menu of law schools. Berkeley Law will be paying the $35 registration fee for our students, so you will not be charged anything when you register online. 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 Marty Grenhart at email@example.com, the Patent Program Liaison for Berkeley Law.
