UCI Law has been admitted into the trademark portion of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s (USPTO) law school clinic certification program. Beginning August 1, 2018, UCI Law students in the UCI Intellectual Property, Arts, and Technology Clinic (IPAT) will be able to practice Intellectual Property Law before the USPTO as Associate Attorneys in the trademark office, under the guidance of UCI Law Lecturer, Christina Gagnier, faculty supervisor for the IPAT Clinic’s technology startup practice.
The students will file trademark applications and other related documents, including correspondence with trademark examiners. UCI Law is one of 61 law schools in the country admitted to the USPTO program, and one of six California law schools.
