Minority and Women Internship for Engineering Students Interested in Patent Law

The Minority and Women Internship Program at Darrow Mustafa PC provides engineering students an opportunity to explore and learn about a career as a patent attorney or agent.

Students will be exposed to patents, the process by which patents are procured, and the enforcement and licensing of patents.  Student will begin to understand the patent application process and learn the steps and procedures required to secure a patent for invention.  Students will be exposed to a variety of technology areas while reviewing inventions submitted by engineers and inventors.  As a part of the process, students will learn to search for prior art and discover how to determine if an invention is patentable.
