What is Summer of IP?
The ‘Summer of IP’ is an initiative created by Careers in Ideas to help raise awareness about the various careers in IP and to attract a more diverse range of people into IP professions.
When does it launch?
Summer of IP will launch on 3rd July 2023, and will run throughout the summer period.
What opportunities are available?
There are two main elements:
Firstly, we are offering numerous exciting opportunities in which IP sector employers provide hands-on activities such as taster days and work experience opportunities. These will be taking place around the country including Birmingham, Cambridge, Liverpool and Manchester. Some of these have application deadlines coming up soon, so you will need to move quickly to secure your place!

Secondly, we will be putting on a series of general talks organised by Careers in Ideas which will provide an introduction to IP and the different careers available. We also have more specific talks such as “Routes to legal qualification for IP solicitors and barristers”, “Applying to train as a patent or trade mark attorney” and “Working as an in-house IP professional”. There is a link to a summary of these talks below. Some of them will be pre-recorded and some will be live with a recording made available afterwards.
