The Loyola University Chicago School of Law will be hosting the 2015 Patent Law Interview Program on Thursday and Friday, July 30-31, in Chicago. This is a nationwide interview program that targets patent law employers and rising 2L and 3L students (Classes of 2016 and 2017).
Last year roughly 135 employers, 190 law schools, and 1,400 law students from across the country participated in the program. The program is entirely preselected, 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
Student registration is now open and closes 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 “The University of Texas School of Law” on the registration form’s drop down menu of law schools.
There is a non-refundable $35 registration fee, which you must pay by credit card to complete your online registration. If you are a member of IPLS, they will reimburse this fee.
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. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Natalie Aitken in the Career Services Office at email@example.com.
