Tech-Patent-Trademark-Shinkle_605

A total of 19 schools are joining the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s law school clinic certification pilot program in the fall, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

There are 28 other law schools that already belong to the program, which permits students to practice patent or trademark law in front of the USPTO. They will practice under the guidance of a supervisor from their school’s faculty.

Clients receive assistance in creating and filing applications within the new clinic.

The St. Louis University School of Law and the other law schools that were selected were done so based on their curriculum surrounding intellectual property, their pro bono services, their outreach and their community networking.

“Expanding the USPTO’s Law School Clinic Certification Pilot Program will provide more students – future intellectual property lawyers – with the real-world experience and tools crucial to tackle the complexities of today’s IP law landscape,” Deputy Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Deputy Director of the USPTO Michelle Lee said in a statement. “The addition of law schools and students in the program will also increase pro bono representation to American businesses and entrepreneurs, thereby helping ensure they have the resources to grow, create jobs and compete globally.”
