  • Undergraduate (or greater) degrees in electrical or computer engineering

In addition to a competitive summer associate salary, the recipient will receive a fellowship amount of $15,000.

The recipient will gain valuable experience in areas such as patent litigation in federal district courts, administrative tribunals, and the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, and in patent prosecution, due diligence, licensing, and intellectual property transactions.
