As a patent attorney practiced in China for 8 years, It is a great experience to study in the MSPL program. I believe that the knowledge I am learning will be very helpful for my future career.

A MSPL degree would compliment my Phd and help facilitate my career objectives within the Industry field. This will give me additional knowledge to identify important IP sources during the developmental track of a product. Not only scientifically how to make the product strong but IP strong as well.

I chose the MSPL because it gives me career opportunities outside of chemistry research. I have always found the law interesting and this program will allow me to work with innovative people and utilize my chemistry background on the legal side of things as a patent agent.

Filing a patent from my research piqued my interest in patent law. With the rigorous training offered by the M.S.P.L. program, I would be well equipped to help bridge the gap between state-of-the-art technological innovations and their applications to the market.
