February 23: Patent Law Interview Program application deadline

The Patent Law Interview Program will be held at the Chicago Marriott Suites O'Hare Thursday and Friday, August 2-3, 2007. If you have an undergraduate or graduate degree in engineering or a technical science, you may want to consider registering for the program. This is a chance to interview with patent law firms, as well as law firms, corporations and government agencies with patent law departments. Last year, 150 employers from across the country participated.

This program is for law students returning to school in Fall 2007. The only exception is for a law graduate studying for an LL.M. in Intellectual Property. The prospective positions are for summer associate and entry-level attorney positions for 2008. If you have accepted a judicial clerkship to begin after graduation (2008 or later), you may register to participate; the clerkships must appear on your resume.

Sign up for the program and pick up informational sheets on employers and which technical degrees are acceptable in the Career Services Office, Suite 360.  To sign up for the program you must also bring along a $35.00 non-refundable check or money order (we cannot accept cash payments) payable to Loyola University Chicago School of Law, by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, February 23rd.
