On the second day, they narrowly lost to the University of Florida, last year's runner-up and one of the top tax programs in the nation.

Loyola Patent Law Interview Program - Student Registration Now Open

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 2013 Patent Law Interview Program will be held on Thursday, August 1 and Friday, August 2, 2013.  Students are responsible for paying a $35.00 fee by credit card to complete their online registration. 


Student registration will be handled online at: and begins on Monday, February 11 and ends on Monday, March 4.  We are listed as "University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law".  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 2013 Patent Law Interview Program will be accepting registrations from:

JD students graduating in May/June 2014 (3Ls)
