Lawyers who specialize in the growing field of intellectual property law focus on the overlap of technology and the law, from cutting-edge technological breakthroughs, to creative products, including music, movies, and authors’ works.
“I appreciate that New England Law is serious about the study of IP law
and offers an IP concentration.” —Serge Subach, Graduate, an associate in Mintz
Levin’s intellectual property practice
IP attorneys work on legal issues that involve technology, such as software and scientific breatkthroughs, as well as creative products, including music, movies and authors' works.
Graduate Profile: Serge Subach
Graduate Serge Subach credits his New England Law | Boston professors and the law school’s Summer Fellowship Program for helping him to land a job with the IP Litigation Group at Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C. “The fellowship got my foot in the door,” he says, “and Professor Jordan Singer’s Patent Litigation class kept it there.
“Professor Singer’s class was spot-on in preparing me for the experiences I had during the fellowship at Mintz,” says Subach. “Patent litigation takes a long time, but his class was like a concentrated simulation of one, so when I saw certain documents on the job, I knew what they were and what to do.”
Subach was asked to stay on as an intern at Mintz Levin during his final year at New England Law, and was extended an offer after graduation, which he accepted.
