The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has launched a two-year law school clinical certification program that will give students from six U.S. law schools experience in practicing intellectual property law before the agency. "We look forward to providing a real-world experience for the students so they will be well prepared to tackle the complexities of intellectual property law that are so important in today's economy," said Jon Dudas, the U.S. Commerce Department undersecretary for intellectual property.
