San Francisco IP Law Association Job Fair

University of California, Hastings College of Law
198 McAllister Street
San Francisco, California 94102
The deadline for registration and bidding has been extended to May 27, 2015
About the Job Fair:
Interview schedules will be available on Symplicity starting on June 16, 2015. If you decide you do not want to accept one or more interviews, there is a strict cancellation deadline of June 19, 2015. Please do not contact the Employer(s) directly to cancel an interview—all cancellations must be done on Symplicity.
When selecting employers with whom you would like to interview, please carefully review their firm materials to determine if your background is compatible with any specific requirements provided by that employer on the registration site. We encourage you to visit your placement office, use MartindaleHubbell and/or visit law firm websites to obtain additional information about the interviewing employers.
Employers are provided the opportunity to pre-screen resumes. Although we will attempt to schedule interviews with as many of the firms you have requested, scheduling will ultimately depend on the number of responses from interested applicants and employer interest.
Please note that this program does not preclude you from participating in any other recruitment effort and certainly does not mean you should not continue to pursue other avenues in your job search. We look forward to your participation in this annual event and we thank you for your time and attention.
To register for the job fair, please visit https://law-sfipla-csm.symplicity.com/students/,
create an account and: (1) complete the Employer Selection Form; and (2) upload your
resume and any supplemental materials such as transcripts or writing samples for firms
that require them. Be assured that your information/forms will not be public and will
only be seen by potential employers and those of us administering the job fair.
For purposes of the 2015 Job Fair, please register based on your Rising Class Year. For
example, if you are currently a 1L student, you should enter your law school year as a
2L (your rising class year). This is because many firms that participate in the SFIPLA Job
Fair are specifically recruiting for their 2016 Summer Associate programs. Accordingly,
they need to know your rising class year to determine if you will qualify for their 2015
summer associate class.
Please complete ALL of the required information at the registration site. It is ESSENTIAL that you provide an e-mail address where we may contact you between now and August 8, 2015. All scheduling information will be communicated via e-mail, and there will be no follow-up information provided by mail or facsimile.
You may begin bidding on employers as early as April 23, 2015. ALL
REGISTRATION INFORMATION (INCLUDING EMPLOYER SELECTIONS) MUST BE
COMPLETE BY 5:00 PM (PDT) May 27, 2015. Furthermore, please note that
employers will not accept interview requests/resumes directly from students.
Day of Logistics:
Interviews will be 20 minutes in length, with ten minute breaks after each interview, beginning at 9 a.m. and concluding at 5 p.m. There will be a catered lunch break from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.

The fellowships are open to members of the 2015 graduating class at GW Law. The salary is $65,000 per year for two years, plus health insurance and other fringe benefits, as well as up to $10,000 to support loan repayments over the two year period.
