A legal internship is ideal for anyone thinking about pursuing the practice of law. Internships are a great way to learn about your field from a real word perspective and to put your teachings from law school into practice. Internships are also a great way to build up your resume and gain the important experience needed to land your dream job in the legal field.
Our legal internships offer diverse experience in the intellectual property law field. Our legal interns assist in all aspects of intellectual property, including patent and trademark research, provisional patent preparation, utility patent preparation (including claims drafting), patent and trademark application filing, case analysis for patent and trademark prosecution arguments, drafting of cease and desist and notice letters, factual investigation, and drafting of memoranda and briefs, while also helping with law office administration, client counselling, and the development of training materials.
U.S. and international law students and recent graduates of all levels are encouraged to apply. Applicants should have a demonstrated interest in and enthusiasm for intellectual property (patents, trademarks, copyrights), contracts, along with excellent research and writing skills and the initiative and energy to see projects to completion in a fast-moving environment. A reliable personal laptop is required.
Lauren is our current intern. She is an international law school graduate from the United Kingdom who joined Integrity Patent Group in March 2016 for a 6 month internship.
“I graduated from law school in 2015 and left with a passion for contract law and a desire to explore the legal field. I knew that an internship would be a great way to put my new degree into practice and gain some real world experience. I was lucky enough to get accepted for this internship and I couldn’t be more grateful. It has been everything I could have asked for and more. I have learned so much in such a short space of time – I’ve even written a set of claims for a utility patent! Before I joined Integrity Patent Group I hadn’t even considered intellectual property law as a field I wanted to go into…and now, it’s the only field I want to go in to.
Jeffrey and Edwin are great teachers with a lot of experience and have been there for me any time I needed them. The amount of care they have for their employees and interns is apparent and it really shows through the morale of the team. The whole integrity team is so friendly and welcoming – which was especially important to me as I was in a new country trying to fit in. I quickly became part of the team and I know the intern after me will be welcomed with open arms and will feel part of the team too. It has been an amazing experience and I would recommend the Integrity Patent Group Internship Program to any fellow law school graduate.”
