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.

About Unified Patents:
Unified Patents is a 200+ international membership organization that seeks to improve patent quality and deter unsubstantiated or invalid patent assertions in defined technology sectors (Zones) through its activities. Its actions are focused broadly in Zones with substantial assertions by Standards Essential Patents (SEP) holders and/or Non-Practicing Entities (NPEs). These actions may include analytics, prior art, invalidity contests, patentability analysis, administrative patent review (PTAB), amicus briefs, economic surveys, and essentiality studies. Unified works independently of its members to achieve its deterrence goals.
