Student Training :
Our internship programs introduce students to the practice of intellectual property law. Students are exposed to each of our main areas of practice. At the same time, our program is flexible enough to allow each student to concentrate on his or her own areas of particular interest. Students often have academic or practical backgrounds that render them well suited to practice in a specific area, such as computer software or biotechnology. For some areas of our practice, an undergraduate or graduate degree in a scientific discipline is important. At the same time, we also work in areas for which a scientific background is not required. Since in some areas of our practice a technical background is important and in others it is not needed, it is the policy of the firm to take both technically trained and non-technically trained professionals for internship programs. The Students experience develops practical professional skills in problem recognition, creative problem solving, communications and drafting.
We assume that students are fully capable of managing a significant degree of responsibility, and we ensure that our students have direct client contact from the outset. Each student is formally assigned to a principal, who provides him or her with guidance and information, and who works with other professionals in the firm to regulate and monitor the student's workload, provide constructive feedback, and ensure that the student is exposed to the required elements of the Law. During the course of the internship our team will also have discussions with the student regarding his or her progress. Students will receive work assignments from various team members throughout the firm. Our team is responsible for advising and supervising the student on his or her work and providing feedback. Students are encouraged to ask questions and to discuss work in progress with our team and other professionals in the firm such as their principal.
We assign two types of work to our students: client work and special project work. Client work involves dealing with specific issues that arise in the context of client files. Special projects may involve research for papers to be presented by firm members, the preparation of reports or summaries on important subjects or developments, or internal case reporting. We expect our students to take initiative, and through open communication with their principals and our other team members, to help us to structure an individual program that will accurately reflect their individual interests and allow them to capitalize on their background and experience. We believe in balance and encourage our students to lead a life that is well rounded and multidimensional.
It is our belief that life is about more than the practice of law. We encourage our professionals to pursue other interests outside of their work with I-WIN IP Services. We expect students to assume a reasonable amount of responsibility and to work productively and efficiently. While there are naturally times during which additional hours are required in order to ensure the timely and satisfactory performance of assigned tasks, those are more the exception than the rule, and we do not expect students to work nights and weekends on a regular basis.
Internal programs designed specifically for students include a series of luncheon seminars presented by our team in the firm on subjects that relate to their areas of expertise. Students are also encouraged to attend regular practice group meetings, which are structured around the issues specific to practice areas and the firm's monthly meetings, which include presentations and the review of intellectual property law developments from the preceding month. In addition, the firm conducts a series of seminars on trade mark law and patent law designed for the purposes of educating lawyers, patent and trade mark agents and students.
The firm's facilities include a large library that contains an extensive collection of books, periodicals and case reports, making it one of the most complete libraries in the country in the field of intellectual property law. The library is fully equipped for computer research. We use the latest in computer technology and personal computers are available to our team and student. Students are provided with an office and shared secretarial assistance.
