The job market for public and private schools begins to open in January.

Pre-Law Advising

Did you know that you can work within intellectual property (IP) law and not have a law degree? IP is a field that has various career opportunities, only one of which is being an attorney. Patent agent, patent examiner, patent engineer, and technical specialist/advisor — these are examples of jobs that require a technical background but not a law degree. There are also career opportunities within IP for attorneys without technical backgrounds.

Georgia Tech students and alumni can join the pre-law email listserv to find out about upcoming events and learning opportunities.

Susan Belmonte, pre-law advisor, can answer questions and offer guidance to students and alumni who want to learn more. She can also add students to the listserv. Email for assistance or more information.
