2018-2019 Student-Attorney Mentorship Program – Apply by Oct. 15!

We are excited to announce that our annual Student-Attorney Mentorship Program is underway!  We invite all interested law students and IP attorneys in the Greater Cincinnati area to apply by October 15, 2018.

Through the Mentorship Program, we match UC and NKU law students interested in intellectual property law with a local intellectual property attorney.  We encourage each mentor-mentee pair to meet 2-3 times throughout the academic year (e.g., over coffee or lunch), making the Program an easy commitment for all participants while providing the students an invaluable opportunity to ask questions, learn about IP practice, and grow their legal network while still in school.  The Program has been a great success in the past, and we hope you will help us make this year’s program a success as well.

If you are a local IP attorney interested in participating as a mentor, please contact Jason Jonovski at jjonovski@fbtlaw.com and indicate your current area(s) of practice.  If you were a mentor in the past, we would love to have you back!

If you are a local law student interested in participating as a mentee, please complete the Student Form below and email it to Alex Czanik at aczanik@fbtlaw.com.  We will do our best to match all student applicants with an attorney mentor! Please be sure to indicate the area(s) of IP law in which you are most interested so we can match you appropriately.
