Loyola Patent Fair, July 31, August 1, Chicago

The 2014 Patent Law Interview Program will be held on Thursday, July 31 & Friday, August 1 at the Embassy Suites Chicago - Downtown/Lakefront at 511 N. Columbus Drive in downtown Chicago.

Student registration will begin on Monday, February 10 and will end on Monday, March 3. The student registration link (once it is open), can be found at:   The student registration link will be located at http://www.luc.edu/law/career/patent_students.htmlStudents will be required to pay the $35 fee participation fee with a credit card to complete their online registration.  

Please note that students do not need to be patent bar eligible to register for the Patent Law Interview Program.  However, many employers make patent bar eligibility a requirement for bidding, and most employers prefer patent bar eligible students.  Although a number of employers indicate on their registration forms that they are willing to interview students who are not patent bar eligible, it is our experience that non-patent bar eligible students are generally disappointed as they do not receive many interviews or job offers through the Patent Law Interview Program.
