Intern Patent Program

Intern Patent Program

Our patent program serves a few clients each semester. Competition for the slots is quite competitive. Applications are now closed for the spring semester. The application will close on September 3, 2021. Only a small percentage of the applications are accepted. Please contact us if you have any questions. 

Understanding patents and the process can be complicated. We have prepared two videos that explain more about the patent process. 

Utlity patent: may be granted to anyone who invents or discovers any new and useful process, machine, article of manufacture, or composition of matter, or any new and useful improvement thereof; (USPTO website).
