Loyola Patent Law Interview Program - Student Registration Now Open Through Monday, March 9, 2015

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 2015 Patent Law Interview Program will be held on Thursday, July 30 and Friday, July 31, 2015.
 
STUDENT REGISTRATION

Student registration will be handled online at:  https://patentlawregistration.luc.edu/lawstudents/Default.aspx  and is now open.  Our school is listed alphabetically as Univ. of Louisville School of Law on the registration form's drop down menu of law schools.  The deadline to register is Monday, March 9.  There is a non-refundable $35 registration fee which you must pay by credit card to complete your online registration.  Please have your credit card ready when you register.  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  

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 2015 Patent Law Interview Program will be accepting registrations from:

JD students graduating in May/June 2016 (3Ls)
JD students graduating in May/June 2017 (2Ls)
JD students graduating in December 2015/January 2016 (3Ls)
JD students graduating in December 2016/January 2017 (2Ls)
Students in Intellectual Property LLM programs with anticipated graduation dates in 2016 and 2017

Please note that on the student registration form these will be the only graduation date options available on the drop down menu.  Students who will graduate before the program is held in July 2015 and students who plan to graduate after May/June 2017 are not eligible for the 2015 Patent Law Interview Program and should not register.

Dual Degree students should use the date that they will complete both of their degrees as their anticipated graduation date.

Michael Maggio Immigrants' Rights Summer Fellowship Program - Deadline Fri., Feb. 13

Since 2009, the Michael Maggio Immigrants' Rights Summer Fellowship Program has awarded a dedicated law school student each summer the opportunity to engage in a self-initiated project that strengthens their commitment for advocacy and promotes justice and equality for vulnerable immigrant groups.

The Fellowship awards $2,500 to a law student to work on an immigration related student-initiated project. Applicants must submit a project proposal with an organization willing to host the student for 10 weeks during the summer. The student's proposal must include a collaborative plan with the host organization to partially match the Fellowship award in the amount of $1,500. This matching may be done by either direct stipend by the host organization or through other means, e.g., law school public interest funding, independent fundraising, etc. This ensures that the student will receive a total funding in the amount of $4,000.

The deadline for the 2015 Summer Fellowship is Friday, February 13th.

Log on to Symplicity for more details.
