Do you have a background in science or technology? Are you looking for a career working with cutting edge innovations? Come to the IILP’s panel on careers in patent law and learn what it takes to find a job in the field. Recent times have witnessed an explosion in the field of patent law. New developments in the law generate a constant need for lawyers with specialized backgrounds, both in the Patent and Trademark Office and in private and corporate practice. Even when other markets for the services of lawyers are affected by recession, the demand for patent attorneys typically remains high. As long as people invent or create, there is a need for intellectual property lawyers to protect and enforce intellectual property rights.
