Summer Program

Our summer program offers students the ability to participate in and gain exposure to a multitude of IP practice areas including litigation, patents, and trademarks. You will have the opportunity to work with some our legal and patent experts on exciting and challenging projects. We also ensure that students participating in our summer program learn about MBM’s practice methods and business systems; a foundation that supports our unique and innovative approach to how we service our clients. Your summer with us will be nothing short of rewarding.

Each year, MBM is very fortunate to meet with talented, bright and driven individuals who have passion for intellectual property, science and business. There really is no better place to gain a rich exposure to all areas of intellectual property and to business.

MBM is committed to growing our students to become well rounded IP professionals. We offer a truly collaborative approach to mentoring and training our students. You will have access to all professionals and partners in various practice groups. They work with you as much or as little as you need to offer guidance, monitor progress, and foster open communication and feedback; ensuring that you are comfortable and confident in your assignments.
