C4IP Accepting Applications For Prestigious D.C. Summer 2024 Internship

WASHINGTON (February 12, 2024) — Today, the Council for Innovation Promotion (C4IP) opened applications for its summer internship program based in Washington, D.C. Interns will have an opportunity to work directly with nationally recognized IP experts, including two past directors of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and two former Judges of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

Day-to-day responsibilities may include: developing policy and strategy on emerging IP issues, helping with educational briefings, conducting research and drafting memoranda, working on blogs and other media, and attending hearings and other Hill or governmental events.

“We’re thrilled to offer current law students the opportunity to advocate for robust IP rights alongside some of the top minds in the field,” said Jamie Simpson, C4IP’s chief policy officer and former chief counsel for the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, IP, and the Internet. “I encourage any law student interested in the intersection of IP policy, innovation, and global competition to apply.”

Qualified applicants should send a short cover letter, resume, and writing sample to internships@c4ip.org. C4IP will accept applications through March 31, 2024, but encourages law students to apply as soon as possible.

“Interns will gain hands-on experience working with lawmakers, staffers, and the public to advance pro-innovation policies that create jobs and improve lives everywhere,” said David Kappos and Andrei Iancu, C4IP board co-chairs and former directors of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. “We look forward to training the next generation of IP leaders.”

More information about the application process is available here. Any questions about the program should be directed to Jamie Simpson at jamie@c4ip.org.
