Are you an IP law student working remotely over the summer? Curious about how to thrive in a virtual summer associate position in an IP law firm or in another remote work environment? This webinar shares advice on how to succeed in a remote work environment over the summer, including how to interface with partners, for example, via videoconferencing platforms; and how to properly stay in contact and network with others at the firm given social distancing and remote work. Remote working has also brought novel legal issues for IP attorneys ranging from postponed deadlines to novel ways of communicating with clients. A marriage of practical and substantive issues, this webinar will provide you with the practical knowledge to thrive over the summer at your IP firm and organization.
Guest panelists include Michael P. Shepherd, a 2002 Notre Dame alumnus and Principal at Fish & Richardson; James Silbermann, Senior Counsel for Enrollment and Intellectual Property Legal Services, U.S. Patent and Trademark Office; Shannon Hughes Mastick, a 2016 NDLS alumna and associate at Marshall Gerstein; Steven Nyikos, General Counsel at Dayblink and a 2015 NDLS alumnus; and Veronica Canton, an ABA-IPL Young Lawyer Fellow and a 2018 NDLS alumna.
