The first week of real MSPL classes was a whirlwind. Mike Wack, Ron Kaminecki and Hal Milton all had plenty of interesting things to talk about in their classes. In the Capstone sections, I discussed techniques our students could use as they head into their interviews with the inventors they’ll be working with for the rest of the year.
On Thursday, I went to Loyola University – Chicago to do some recruiting for next year’s MPSL class. Loyola has a brand-new student union, which was a great place to host a grad school and career fair! Hopefully I met some prospective patent agents there!
On Friday, we hosted the first of our Friday Lunch-and-Learn speakers: Paul Tully from McDonnell, Boehnen, Hulbert and Berghoff in Chicago. Paul is a patent litigator, and gave the group a great overview of patent law in general.
On Saturday, Paul and his daughter came back to ND for our home opening football game – against the Temple Owls. That’s me, second from the left, and Paul, next to me.
