Finnegan is launching a new initiative to increase the number of African American and Black students pursuing careers in intellectual property (“IP”) law. The Finnegan IP Summit will be a multi-day immersion program during which African American and Black law students travel to Washington, DC, and participate in educational programming, networking events, and hands-on workshops with IP professionals from Finnegan, in-house counsel, judges, and government representatives. The program will include site visits to local courts, corporations, and government agencies, including the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
The program is free to the students, and Finnegan will cover travel costs and meals. Accommodations will be on the campus of the George Washington University Law School.
Application Deadlines April 28, 2023 for current law students; June 1, 2023 for incoming law students.
Summit Location Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner, LLP 901 New York Ave, NW Washington, DC 20001
