Graduate Opportunities

MS in Patent Law at the University of Notre Dame

Patent attorneys and patent agents help inventors get patents to protect their ideas. Patent attorneys and patent agents usually work at law firms, or at companies where researchers create new products. They work in all fields of technology - from electrical engineering to biology. Patent agents especially are in high demand in the legal market! So, if someone has a technical background, and an interest in the law, this field is an exciting career choice for them.

I am the director of a relatively new Master's program at Notre Dame (the MS in Patent Law), which prepares people for practice as patent agents. What's a patent agent? In short, a patent agent is similar to a patent attorney, except that s/he hasn't spent three years in law school so isn't a lawyer. As far as helping inventors get patents, a patent agent is exactly the same as a patent attorney.

The MS in Patent Law is accepting applications now for our 2014-2015 class. Our graduates have enjoyed good success in their job searches - from our first class of seven students, six have jobs at law firms now.

If a career as a patent agent, or the MS in Patent Law, is of interest to you, please feel free to contact me at kdeak@nd.edu. I am always happy to talk!

Voice Consulting for Professional Women

Good afternoon women engineers!

I'm contacting you as a fellow female professional and voice expert. Judgments are made about you the moment you speak. At the first sound of your voice, listeners are deciding if you are smart, confident, worthy. As a speech-language pathologist specialized in voice, and female scientist with my PhD, I am acutely aware of the judgments made on women based solely on the sound of their voice in presentations. As a professional speaker, your message is critical, and the sound of your voice may diminish the quality of the content being conveyed. This problem plagues female professionals across disciplines. As a female professional, public speaking- from conference calls to academic podium presentations- is often an unavoidable requirement. However, you can learn to have control over how you represent yourself in these situations. It is possible, with training, to acquire a voice that conveys confidence, intelligence, and authority.

About me:
I am a licensed speech-language pathologist with my PhD in communication science and disorders, specialized in voice. I am currently research faculty at the University of Pittsburgh (Assistant Professor, School of Medicine). I have practiced clinical voice care for 10 years. I am passionate about women's issues, particularly those surrounding women in the workplace and career advancement. Frustrated from hearing the weak voice quality of professional women in news interviews or public presentations, I recently merged my passions for voice and the state of women in the workplace and began providing private voice consulting to help improve the perception of female speakers.

My services:
If you are interested in improving your overall communication, specifically your voice in public speaking contexts, I am available for consultation. Specifically I can conduct training in the environment where you will be giving a presentation. Studies show that practice that closely mimics the real-life scenario is best for learning new skills. To that end, we can work on your presentation in the room, behind the podium, etc. where you will be speaking (or as close as possible to this ideal environment).

If you are interested in improving your public speaking abilities, or having me speak to your group, please contact me.

Sincerely,
Amanda Gillespie, PhD
