We offer the opportunity for undergraduates and postgraduates to visit our offices and learn more about the job by attending one of our open days, which take place in November and December.
Mewburn Ellis is committed to training the next generation of patent and trade mark attorneys. As part of this commitment, we hold an annual open day for prospective patent attorneys in each of our four UK offices. Trade mark open days are held less frequently, and typically take place in our London office. Both patent and trade mark open days aim to give prospective attorneys an idea of what the job involves on a day-to-day basis.
During the course of the day there is a series of talks and practical exercises, covering topics such as patent drafting, patent prosecution and managing the workload. The day also offers plenty of opportunity to ask questions about the job, and about Mewburn Ellis.
Dates for our 2018 open days will be posted in the Autumn.
