Loyola University Chicago School of Law is hosting the 2009 Patent Law Interview Program on Thursday, July 30, and Friday, July 31, in Chicago. Last year roughly 150 employers and 1,500 law students from across the country participated in the program. You do not need to be patent bar eligible to register, but the vast majority of employers participating in the program are seeking patent bar eligible students. Beginning Monday, February 23, students who want to participate in this summer's Loyola Patent Law Interview Program may register on line. On that day a "Register Now" link will appear on the Student Information Page.
The student registration form is very simple. All students need to enter at this point is some basic contact, school and class year information. Students will also need a credit card to pay the $35 registration fee to complete their online registration. This simple registration is just the first step in participating in the program. Once students are registered, the Program will send them information about how to register in Symplicity, upload their resume, and bid on interviews. The deadline for student registration is Friday, March 13. You MUST register by the deadline.
If you register for this Program but do not receive an email confirmation of your registration, please check your junk mail folder (particularly if you are using a gmail or other non-school email address). If you still can't find the confirmatory email, please contact Asst. Dean Jane Heymann, who is the Patent Program Liaison in the Career Services Office.
