Maya Strohm M.S.P.L. ’21
The MS Patent Law degree program and its test preparation service helped me to pass the USPTO Registration Examination on the first attempt. The practical and procedural information I learned will continue to enable my success beyond the registration examination and into future professional opportunities.

In the MS Patent Law degree program, I had a chance to work on real projects with practicing patent attorneys and receive informative and educational feedback, which I wouldn't have had otherwise. In my patent field placement course, I worked directly on real patent matters with patent lawyers from an S&P 500 company, a global patent law firm, and a local patent law firm. In my patent Capstone course, I worked on a project for a multinational food, snack, and beverage corporation. And as a student intern for University Technology Commercialization, I worked on patent searching matters.

I highly recommend the Patent Internship experience, where I gained a better understanding of patent prosecution beyond what I learned in the classroom. I will hold on to this experience and learning for the rest of my career.
