IEEE ASU Student Branch will be organizing a workshop on patent drafting and entrepreneurship policies in the United States. The students will have an opportunity to learn about career opportunities for engineering and hard-science graduates to become registered Patent Agents and about the new Master of Legal Studies with a Patent Practice emphasis offered by the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University.

The speaker for the workshop is Michelle L. Gross, who serves as the Director of the Lisa Foundation Patent Law Clinic as well as developing and teaching the core curriculum of the Masters of Legal Studies, Patent Practice concentration program in the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law. Her instructional focus is on training students on the practical applications of laws and rules pertaining to transactional intellectual property practice, namely the practical aspects of patent and trademark application drafting and prosecution. In addition to her membership in the Arizona and Illinois State bars, Professor Gross is also a registered Patent Attorney and is licensed to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

The workshop is scheduled on Friday, 15th March 2019 from 6pm to 7pm in GWC 487. As always, there will be free pizza and drinks for the event.
