Carpmaels & Ransford LLP is one of the leading firms of patent & trade mark attorneys, based in London, with a global reputation for the best patent work in engineering, IT, chemistry, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. Being a leader in our field is not an accident, it’s the product of expertise, experience and recruitment of the best individuals from the world’s top universities.
Whilst intellectual prowess is the bedrock of our firm, there are other important factors that contribute to the special energy found within the firm. We look for committed and enthusiastic individuals, and foster a culture where everyone’s view is valued. As one of the world’s first patent attorney firm, we celebrate and value a distinguished heritage, whilst continually striving to be at the cutting-edge of our profession.
Carpmaels & Ransford is delighted to promote a two-week Intern programme in 2019.
Internships and other work experience in the patent profession are notoriously difficult to obtain and this is therefore a rare opportunity to experience first-hand working within one of Europe’s leading firms of patent attorneys.
Our structured programme will include seminars, case studies, work shadowing and involvement in client conferences and active cases, as well as an opportunity to see the social side of the firm, engaging with all members of the firm from Partners to Trainees.
The intern programme will run from 24th June to 5th July 2019 at our offices in Central London and will be paid with a contribution made toward travel expenses. Interns will be responsible for their own accommodation.
Applicants should have an outstanding academic record (minimum of 360 UCAS points and on course for a 2:1 or above) in one of the following disciplines: physics, mechanical engineering, electronics/electrical engineering, IT/computer science, materials science, chemical engineering, chemistry, pharmacology, biochemistry, molecular biology.
Applicants must be available for the duration of the internship.
Priority will be given to applicants who are expecting to complete their academic studies or research in 2020.
How to apply
Applications must be made via the online application form on our website by 22th April 2019 and will require a copy of your CV and a letter (of no more than one page) explaining why you should be considered for an internship. Short interviews via Skype will be scheduled during May 2019.
The number of internships we are able to offer is very limited and failure to be selected for an internship should not discourage application through our normal graduate entry procedure.Apply now
