Loyola Patent Law Interview Program Loyola University Chicago School of Law is hosting the 2010 Patent Law Interview Program on Thursday, July 29 and Friday, July 30, 2010 in Chicago, Illinois. This is a nationwide interview program that targets patent law employers, rising 2L and 3L students, and students in Intellectual Property LLM programs. Last year roughly 90 employers, 170 law schools, and 1,800 law students from across the country participated in the program. Students with undergraduate or graduate degrees in engineering or a technical science should consider registering for the program. You do not need to be patent bar eligible to register, although the vast majority of employers participating in the program are seeking patent bar eligible students. For more information and to register, please refer to the program's website. The registration deadline is Monday, March 8, 2010. 2010 Lavender Law Career Fair & Conference Registration is now open for the 2010 Lavender Law Career Fair & Conference, which will be held August 26-28, 2010 at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel.
