Hispanic Students Who Aspire to IP Careers Convene in DC

May 29, 2014, The National Law Journal

Covington summer associate, Kassandra Maldonado, is quoted regarding The Intellectual Property Law Institute, a partnership between Microsoft Corp. and the Hispanic National Bar Association, which aims to boost the number of Hispanic IP practitioners. 

The article states, "Kassandra Maldonado, a 3L at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law, knows what it feels like to be in the minority—she was the only Hispanic student last year on the Berkeley Technology Law Journal and is accustomed to being an anomaly in IP classes."

“For me, it was an opportunity to immerse myself within an intellectual property practice,” said Maldonado, now a summer associate at Covington & Burling. “In law school, you’re stuck in a classroom and it’s hard to envision what it would be like in an intellectual property practice, especially when you look around an there’s no one else who looks like you.”
