Together, we can create foundational programs and opportunities that reduce socioeconomic barriers and provide all demographics with a clear path into patent law.
Patent Pathways™ is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to addressing barriers to equal opportunity in the bar patent through free, virtual education, practical exercises, and financial support.
Law Firm Partners are an integral part of the Patent Pathways™ Program. Your support allows individuals to partake in the program, register for the patent bar and jumpstart their career without incurring a financial burden. Partners also have the exclusive opportunity to interview and hire participants directly from the program, and gain visibility across Patent Pathways™ social media channels, website, and related publicity.
Additional partner benefits include:
- Opportunities to network with in-house counsel at leading corporations
- Ability to mentor new practitioners and share your experiences in patent law
- Receive credits within your firm for diversity and pro bono activities
- Access a pool of highly talented, vetted, and trained diverse candidates, who law firms can hire directly out of the program
