Open days


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.

Open days

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 the 2017 patent open days are as follows:

Cambridge 21 November
Bristol 5 December
London 8 December Please note, the London office open day is very popular. Those registering to attend the London open day will be placed on a waiting list and notified when a place becomes available.
Manchester 15 December

For our autumn 2018 intake, we are looking to recruit patent individuals from all technical areas. Places on the open days are limited. If you wish to book a place, please email us at with your name, undergraduate degree subject, brief details of any further study, and your (expected) year of graduation.
