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.

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.
