The Southeastern Intellectual Property Job Fair® is the largest IP job fair in the region. Organized by Career Services Office and the College of Law's Intellectual Property Advisory Board, it is made possible by student volunteers, alumni and staff.
The job fair encompasses all areas of intellectual property from litigation, transactional work, prosecution, and spans across all industries and types of organizations.
A component of SIPJF, the PaTech Program connects students with a patent license or an interest in technical advising with potential intellectual property employers. PaTech employers seek science, engineering or technology students who are interested in new innovations and ideas, have exceptional creative and analytical skills and/or are familiar with intellectual property.
PATech candidates do not need to have a J.D. or be enrolled in law school.
