UPDATE-2017 Loyola Patent Law Interview Program

Student registration for the 2017 Patent Law Interview Program has been extended through Wednesday, March 15 @ 11:59 p.m. CST. 

Loyola University Chicago School of Law’s annual Patent Law Interview Program will be held this year on Thursday and Friday, August 3-4 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 150 employers, 190 law schools, and 1,200 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.

Student registration begins today, Monday, February 6 and ends on Friday, March 10.  Students may register here: http://www.luc.edu/law/career/patent_students.html. 

The student registration fee is $35 per student. Students that register and attend the event may submit a request for reimbursement from the CDO.  The CDO will reimburse students on a limited, first come basis.

When you register, you will look for the law school name, The University of Denver Sturm College of Law, in an alphabetized drop down menu.

Please note that students do not need to be patent bar eligible to register for the Patent Law Interview Program.  However, many employers make patent bar eligibility a requirement for bidding, and most employers prefer patent bar eligible students.  Although a number of employers indicate on their registration forms that they are willing to interview students who are not patent bar eligible, it is our experience that non-patent bar eligible students are generally disappointed as they do not receive many interviews or job offers through the Patent Law Interview Program.

If you have any questions regarding the 2017 Patent Law Interview Program, please contact us (303/871-6124; careers@law.du.edu).
