(1) Reminder: Employer Outreach Program #5 this Wednesday!

The fifth installment of our Employer Outreach Series is happening WEDNESDAY, March 9th, from 5:00 –7:30 PM in the SCC.

Wednesday’s program will host several law firms to take part in a panel on “Succeeding As An IP Summer Associate And Beyond.” We will also be hosting a networking event before and after the panel. This event benefits each firm by dramatically increasing the number of attendees, and benefits the students by allowing them to meet multiple firms at once and by having an educational panel.
Participating Firms:*

Haynes and Boone, LLP

Pillsbury, Winthrop, Shaw, Pittman, LLP

Knobbe, Martens, Olson & Bear, LLP

McDermott, Will & Emery

Baker Botts LLP

*The firms in attendance will be collecting resumes from 1Ls and all other students.

Dress Code: Business Professional

Location: Student Conference Center, Lisner Hall, 2nd Floor

Alcohol will be available via a ticket system for individuals over the age of 21 with a valid, government-issued ID.

(2) Last Chance to Register for the Loyola Patent Law Interview Program! Deadline 3/10

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 2016 Patent Law Interview Program will be held on Thursday, August 4 & Friday, August 5, in Chicago, Illinois.

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. The last day to register is this Thursday, March 10! Check out http://www.luc.edu/law/career/patent_schools.html for more information on this year’s program.

We highly recommend that all students interested in a career in Intellectual Property law register for this recruiting event because it is where most SIPLA members find their 2L summer jobs.
