Careers in Intellectual Property Law

The Intellectual Property Law Society, the Intellectual Property Program and the Career Services Office sponsor this program each year in September. Professors from the IP program talk to students about careers in intellectual property law, the upcoming "on-campus interviewing" season, and the different avenues for pursuing careers in intellectual property. For more information about this year's event, check the IP event page.

IPLS Resume Workshop

The Intellectual Property Law Society (IPLS) organizes an annual Student Resume Workshop. The Student Resume Workshop provides IPLS members with the opportunity to receive constructive criticism regarding their resumes from Intellectual Property faculty and area Intellectual Property practitioners.

The Student Resume Workshop consists of sessions during which faculty and practitioners meet individually with students to discuss the students' resumes. The Workshop typically runs in October-November. Workshop sessions will last either twenty or thirty minutes, and most will take place at the law school between 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays throughout the duration of the program. Practitioner availability may dictate that some sessions take place at alternate times or locations. Details will be posted on the IPLS website.
