Now Accepting Applications: International Patent Drafting Competition

The University of Detroit Mercy School of Law’s Intellectual Property Clinic is once again hosting an International Patent Drafting Competition February 10-11, 2017 and we’re eager to defend our current winning streak!

The Center is now accepting applications from 2L and 3Ls who have taken (or are taking) patent law, the IP Clinic, or patent prosecution, or who can otherwise demonstrate patent drafting experience. If you have passed the patent bar, you are still eligible to apply. Applications should include a very brief statement of interest, resume, and transcript. We are offering 1 credit, P/F in the spring semester. Professor Hedges will be the faculty supervisor.

Please be aware that given the condensed schedule for this competition (final drafts will be due late January), some work and meetings will occur in the fall semester and over winter break. Conference call information will be made available to competitors, so in-person attendance is not required over break.

Given the tight turnaround of this competition, please submit completed applications to Casey at by Tuesday, September 27 at  5:00PM.
