Loyola University Chicago School of Law is hosting the 2021 Patent Law Interview Program on Thurs and Fri, July 22-23. This nationwide program targets patent law employers and rising 2L and 3L students. The 2021 Patent Law Interview Program will be a fully virtual job fair. Registration is now open through March 19. For more information on the program, please refer to the Loyola Patent Program website at: https://www.luc.edu/law/currentstudents/careerservices/patentprogram/.
Last year roughly 150 employers, 190 law schools, and 1,300 law students from across the country participated in the program. The program is entirely pre-selected, which means that students submit application materials to apply to interviews with the employers they are interested in, and employers then review their materials 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. The following students may participate in the 2021 program in July:
JD students graduating in May/June 2022 (Rising 3Ls)
JD students graduating in May/June 2023 (Rising 2Ls)
JD students graduating in December 2021/January 2022 (Rising 3Ls)
JD students graduating in December 2022/January 2023 (Rising 2Ls)
Online student registration for this year’s Patent Law Interview Program is NOW OPEN and CLOSES on Friday, March 19.
Students can register at: https://epay.luc.edu/C20996_ustores/web/store_main.jsp?STOREID=311&SINGLESTORE=true. 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). There is a non-refundable $40 dollar registration fee that you must pay by credit card to complete your online registration. Please have your credit card ready when you register. Please note that Denver Law will reimburse you for this fee if you bid for interviews and attend the fair; you must however pay the fee initially yourself to register. Once you have registered, the Loyola program staff will communicate with you directly via email to the address that you entered when registering for the program.
