Jones Robb is very excited to welcome our legal interns for a summer of education and fun. Over the course of ten weeks this summer, our interns will be attending seminars related to different aspects of the practice of patent law, touring the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, sitting in on Examiner interviews and inventor calls, attending a writing seminar taught by Ed Good, and completing a research project. The summer won’t be all work related, as ice cream socials and a firm picnic form part of our summer line up. This year we welcome four summer interns, three of whom are returning interns. Learn more about our talented and engaging summer class below.
