SPECIAL NOTE FOR PRE-LAW MAJORS FROM PROFESSOR TANNA:
Several important topics are:

  • • Understanding and Using Time Lines
  • • Ramping Up Your Work Ethic
  • • Learning New Skills

IP Law: Time Management and Time Lines
For those interested in IP Law, there are many things that a law school student (or pre-law student) should know about the practice area as early as possible. This will allow you to be prepared for the many hurdles that follow. PatBar® is providing a Webinar that explains a game plan and time line for those interested in IP Law. Almost any law school student that expects to represent businesses could fall into this category because IP is such a diverse practice area.  Almost every law firm, large or small, that has business clients will have legal work that involves IP Law. It may be patent, or it may be a trademark or a domain name dispute; the possibilities are endless. David Meeks, founder of PatBar®, patent attorney and webinar instructor, has been involved with patents from his first job out of engineering school as a development engineer.
