Southeastern IP Job Fair (SIPJF)

The Premier Environment
For Intellectual Property Career Recruiting

Now in its 19th year! SIPJF undertakes a multi-faceted approach to ensure that students are gaining the best employment opportunities and employers are procuring the brightest future members of the IP community.

Throughout the year, SIPJF is reaching out to even more law schools and working with additional career service departments to attract the top students interested in IP law.

SIPJF Diverse Candidate Interview Coaching

Diverse students interested in pre-interview coaching are invited to participate in SIPJF mentoring sessions hosted by the GIPA DEI Committee. Interested students will be paired with an IP professional for a 1-hour telephone/video call in advance of their SIPJF interview.

Students interested in mentoring should send an email by July 1. Sign-up emails should include a copy of the student’s resume and current contact information. Students may indicate if they identify with a particular group and would like to be paired with someone of a similar background.

If you have questions about SIPJF, please feel free to contact chair Sam Mullman. We look forward to your participation this summer.
