The Intellectual Property Law Section of the North Carolina Bar Association is soliciting applications from law students and attorneys for its new mentorship program. The goal is to increase networking and professional development opportunities for law students at any North Carolina law school who are interested in the intellectual property profession, including copyrights, patents, trademarks, and transactional IP.
Several Parker Poe attorneys will be involved in the formal mentorship program, including Tiffany Burba and Sloan Carpenter, who serve on the leadership council for the NCBA Intellectual Property Law Section. The program will pair current law students with local intellectual property attorneys during the 2022-2023 academic calendar year. It will have a kickoff reception, monthly activities between mentors and mentees, and a closing reception.
The deadline to apply is Friday, September 9.
