Opportunity for Latino Law Students Interested in Intellectual Property

By Jason Rantanen

The Hispanic National Bar Association and Microsoft are once again sponsoring their week-long HNBA/Microsoft Intellectual Property Law Institute (IPLI).  One of my students participated in the 2013 IPLI and raved about it for months afterwards.

From the IPLI website:

The “HNBA/Microsoft IP Law Institute” will provide opportunities for Latino students interested in intellectual property law, including patents, copyrights, trade secrets and trademarks. This summer, up to twenty-five Latino law students from law schools across the country will be chosen to participate in an IP immersion program in Washington, DC with all necessary expenses covered. Candidates will be selected in a highly competitive process, and the selected students will be provided substantive instruction, the opportunity to observe first-hand U.S. IP institutions at work, and the chance to meet leading members of the IP legal community who will serve as mentors and potentially provide pathways for future job opportunities.

    I participated in this program last summer and highly recommend all those interested to apply. The program provided lectures at various governmental offices such as the USPTO, ITC, and FTC. The program also provided amazing networking opportunities with top lawyers at world-renowned law firms. IPLI is highly competitive so submit your application early.
