A free Careers in Ideas and IP Futures event
Friday 18 March 2022
5 – 6 pm


The Careers in Ideas logo

This was a free online “meet the IP professionals” event for people who are interested in a career in intellectual property (IP). First run during our November 2020 Careers in Ideas Week and again in September 2021, it provided a chance to meet with recent recruits to the IP professions and find out what their jobs are really like and how they got there.

Our panellists included trainee patent and trade mark attorneys, an IP-specialist solicitor and barrister and an IP Office (civil service) examiner. As well as hearing their individual stories and advice, delegates had the opportunity to join them in smaller breakout rooms for informal chat and Q&A sessions. We sent panellist profiles in advance so that people had the chance to think about what they’d like to ask.

The event took place via Zoom on Friday 18 March 2022, from 5 to 6 pm. It was hosted by IP Futures, which is an IP Inclusive community specially for early-career IP professionals. You can read more about IP Futures here, and about Careers in Ideas more generally here.

If you’re an IP professional, do please spread the word about this event – which we regularly re-run – to people who might be interested in careers in IP.


Follow-up resources

You can access a recording of the main panel discussion here, and information about the panellists here.



Careers in Ideas events are open to anyone considering a career in intellectual property.



This event was free. So are all our resources. We think it’s important to keep IP Inclusive and Careers in Ideas on the right side of the paywall.

That said, we do need money to keep the show on the road, so if you enjoyed the event please consider contributing to our 2021-22 fundraising campaign. For more information – including about corporate donations – visit our fundraising page.
