Making a Career in IP Law with Diverse Backgrounds

February 03, 2015 • 12:30 PM • Law School 4055

Please join the Women Law Students Association, Duke Law & Technology Review, and Intellectual Property & Cyberlaw Society for a panel discussing IP law and how women can get involved in this rapidly growing field, no matter their educational background. We will be discussing careers in all aspects of IP law, from trademarks to copyright to patents. This is the first panel of WLSA's Professional Development Spring Series. Our panelists include Jennifer Anderson, a partner at Olive & Olive who focuses on copyright and trademark issues, Julie Richardson, a Duke Law alumna and shareholder at Myers Bigel Sibley & Sajovec who focuses on patent law, and Professor Jennifer Jenkins, who runs the Arts Project at Duke's Center for the Study of the Public Domain. Our panelists will share how their backgrounds influenced their decision to pursue IP law, and share tips for students trying to get involved in the field! Sponsored by Hogan Lovells.
