Loyola University Chicago School of law is hosting the 2010 Patent Law Interview Program on Thursday, July 29 and Friday, July 30 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 90 employers, 170 law schools, and 1,800 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, less than half of the participating students were selected for interviews, but many students were selected for multiple 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.
