INSPIRATION FOR PURSUING A CAREER IN IP LAW

“IP Law offers an amazing opportunity to learn and work with emerging technologies in various fields. During a typical day in IP law, I could find myself working on an aircraft engine application for an industry giant and then meeting with a local inventor to help protect the next great household article.

I appreciate creativity and find interest in the many ways that innovators express their original ideas. A robust patent system helps drive competition and increase our standard of living, so having the opportunity to advocate for inventors in what can be a complex process is extremely fulfilling. Furthermore, it is the competitive nature of patent law, especially in litigation, that motivates me to produce my best work possible.”
