Loyola University Chicago School of Law is hosting the 2021 Patent Law Interview Program on Thursday and Friday, July 22-23. This nationwide interview program targets patent law employers and rising 2L and 3L students. The 2021 Patent Law Interview Program will be a fully virtual job fair.
The 2021 Patent Law Interview Program will be accepting registrations from:
- 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)
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.
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.
For more information on the program, please refer to the Loyola Patent Program website at: https://www.luc.edu/law/currentstudents/careerservices/patentprogram/. Online student registration currently is open and will close on Friday, March 19, 2021.
There is a non-refundable $40 registration fee, which NYU Law will cover for all students. Students may pay the fee when they register and be reimbursed by OCS, or they may email Maddie Montes De Oca (Maddie.firstname.lastname@example.org) and have her register/pay on their behalf.
