For people starting out in any field, it’s important to learn from the ones who are already making their mark. WIPR spoke to some of the 2019 Class of Trailblazers about their advice for those entering the IP profession and the challenges they’ve overcome.
It’s great to have a broad legal foundation before becoming too specialist. A good grounding in contract law and commercial litigation is extremely useful. However, it is important to bear in mind that you need to have your IP goal from the start.
Lots of firms do not have significant IP practices and it may be hard to move into IP later in your career if you do not get some basic grounding in your training contract.
