Loyola Patent Law Interview Program - Student Registration Extended through Wednesday, March 5th at NoonPosted March 3rd, 2014 by Debra K. Reh
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 will be handled online at: https://patentlawregistration.luc.edu/lawstudents/Default.aspx and is now open. The deadline to register has been extended until Wednesday, March 5th at Noon. 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.
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.

This public service opportunity is ideal for students and local community volunteers interested in immigration law. Professor Trucios-Haynes leads a team of volunteers on monthly visits to the Boone County Jail where immigration detainees are held in the custody of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) bureau of the Department of Homeland Security. Trained students, with the supervision of Prof. Trucios-Haynes, conducts "Know Your Rights" presentations to approximately 200+ detainees during each visit, and conducts individual in-take interviews of each detainee.
On Thursday, March 27, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in Room LL80, Prof. Trucios-Haynes will hold a training here at the law school to train students to go on monthly visits to the Boone County Jail to conduct "Know Your Rights" presentations to detainees. The next jail visit will be on Friday, March 28.
Students interested in attending the training on March 27 and/or going on the jail visit on March 28, should email Prof. Trucios-Haynes directly by Monday, March 17. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org. When notifying Prof. Trucios-Haynes, please let her know if you speak a second language, although it is not necessary.
Students whose schedules do not allow them to visit the jail on Fridays can still take the training. All students are welcome. Once you have been trained you can attend a Friday visit when you are available. A more detailed description of this project is attached, along with some compelling stories giving examples of some cases that have gone through the Boone County Jail. More stories can also be found at: http://www.immigrantjustice.org/tags/these-lives-matter.
If you are a student who has already been trained and would like to attend the Friday visit on March 28, please e-mail Prof. Trucios-Haynes by March 17, as well, so she can add your name to the list.
Students will receive public service credit for the training and site visits. Students will also be able to count their travel time to and from the Boone County Jail.
