Technology and Intellectual Property Student Group are sponsoring this
session. Practicing Law Institute’s
(PLI) Director of Law School Relations and a Director of their Patent Bar
Review Course, Mark Dighton, will be visiting the campus from New York City to
discuss the patent bar exam and considerations for taking the exam as well as
some information about the patent career field.
Topics for discussion include: The
latest info on the Patent Bar Exam; Who can take it; How it works, now that
it's on computer; When you should take it (you don't need to…and probably
shouldn't…wait until you graduate); How and when the new Rules’ changes coming
out of the Patent Office will impact the Exam; and, Recommendations on when and
how to study for this very difficult Exam.
Scholarships to PLI's other IP programs will also be discussed. Please RSVP in the Events Section of
Symplicity under Workshops. For more
