Let's Get Started
The IP Clinic provides the following services free of charge:
Lincoln Law School of San Jose
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY CLINIC
The Intellectual Property Clinic at Lincoln Law School of San Jose is a pro bono clinic that operates on an academic calendar year basis and is open from late August to early April.
The Clinic includes the only patent clinic and is one of two trademark clinics in all Northern California. Additionally, it is strategically located to facilitate interaction with the USPTO satellite office in Silicon Valley.
Although the Clinic wishes to provide services to all, the demand for the Clinic services requires that we impose some restrictions (such as the submission process) on potential clients. Additionally, for those with a financial need (e.g. not to exceed 150% of federal poverty guidelines, as shown HERE), the Clinic does not impose any geographic restrictions. However, for those that do not have a financial need, the Clinic only provides services to those within California, with a preference for those within driving distance of San Jose.

To apply for services, the Clinic accepts applications for review only during the months of May-June. If an application is submitted outside of the window of review (outside of May-June time period), it will not be processed.
