Patent Law Externship Program Welcomes Students from Rutgers and UPenn

Rutger's Patent Externs
Lerner David participated in the Rutgers Douglas Residential College Externship Program again this year.  We welcomed Rina Badge, who is majoring in biochemistry from Rutgers University. We also welcomed Aaron Tsui, who is majoring in computer engineering at University of Pennsylvania. 
This is our third year of hosting patent law externship and it was our first in-person externship.  The week-long program consisted of interactive sessions on patent procurement, patent litigation, post-grant proceedings, licensing, studies/opinions, and trademarks given by various partners of the firm. The students also had mentoring sessions with junior attorneys and the managing partner. We were happy to share our time to support students gain first-hand insight into the world of patent and trademark Law.
