Unified Patents Seeks Legal Interns

Unified Patents is now accepting applications for legal internship and fellowship positions for assisting with its legal and database activities, including PATROLL prior art search contests.

The Legal Internship has generally been an unpaid position, but Unified will offer tuition stipends per semester for historically underrepresented students entering the patent field currently enrolled in law school. These diversity scholarship stipends will be awarded based on need and availability.

About this Position:

Interns and fellows will potentially have the ability to assist with PTAB analytics and drafting of papers in IPR proceedings. While the internships are non-paid, we offer flexibility and the option to work remotely. During the position, there will be opportunities to win prize money for contests to find successful prior art on specific patents. For more information and instructions on how to apply, click here.


  • Experience with MS Excel, Google Sheets

  • JD candidate or graduate

    • Highly preferred to have completed at least one intellectual property course

  • Undergraduate degree in a field of science or engineering highly preferred

  • Experience with prior art searching and analysis preferred

A technical background is highly preferred, although some training will be given (e.g., how to search for prior art).

Interested candidates are asked to Apply Online.
