TODAY!! Deadline to RSVP for Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Assessment

This is a reminder that TODAY is the deadline to RSVP for the Myers-Briggs type indicator assessment.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.

Former Assistant Dean for the Office of Professional Development, Kathy Urbach, has been conducting the Myers-Briggs assessments for several years. She will be at the law school on Thursday, February 27, from 11:50 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. PLEASE NOTE: Due to an overwhelming response, we have moved the program to Room LL80. The assessment is fun and can be quite eye-opening.

Space is still limited; therefore, we are asking students to RSVP if they plan to attend. Please RSVP by noon TODAY to Jina Scinta at jina.scinta@louisville.edu. Please indicate your type, if you know it, when you RSVP. Lunch will be provided.

Loyola Patent Law Interview Program - Student Registration Now Open through Monday, March 3

The Loyola Patent Law Interview Program is a two-day interview program held in Chicago each summer that brings together patent law employers and law students from across the country to interview for summer associate positions and post-graduate employment.  The 2014 Patent Law Interview Program will be held on Thursday, July 31 and Friday, August 1, 2014. 

STUDENT REGISTRATION

Student registration will be handled online at:  https://patentlawregistration.luc.edu/lawstudents/Default.aspx  and is now open.  The deadline to register is Monday, March 3.  If you want to participate, you must register by the deadline.  Because of the verification process that will have to take place immediately after student registration closes, late student registrations will not be accepted.

STUDENT ELIGIBILITY  

Only law students are eligible to participate in the Patent Law Interview Program. It is not required that students be patent bar eligible to register for the program; however, many employers require patent bar eligibility as a qualification for bidding on interviews, and most employers strongly prefer patent bar eligible students. For more information on eligibility for the patent bar, please refer to the General Requirements Bulletin from the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office.

The 2014 Patent Law Interview Program will be accepting registrations from:

JD students graduating in May/June 2015 (3Ls)
JD students graduating in May/June 2016 (2Ls)
JD students graduating in December 2014/January 2015 (3Ls)
JD students graduating in December 2015/January 2016 (2Ls)
Students in Intellectual Property LLM programs with anticipated graduation dates in 2015 and 2016

Students who will graduate before the program is held in August 2014 and students who plan to graduate after May/June 2016 are not eligible for the 2014 Patent Law Interview Program and should not register.
