The University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School seeks a visiting Practice Professor for its Detkin Intellectual Property and Technology Legal Clinic (DIPTC) for its current Director who will be on sabbatical during the 2022-2023 academic year. The DIPTC is one of several clinics within the Gittis Center for Clinical Legal Studies, Penn's endowed clinical program. The DIPTC is an important component of Penn Law's broader intellectual property and technology offerings, coordinating with the Center for Technology, Innovation and Competition and student intellectual property affinity groups.

The DIPTC offers students the opportunity to directly counsel clients in transactional IP and technology law. Students explore the interplay between law, business, technology, and the arts as they offer strategic counsel to early-stage ventures, technologists, scientists, and creatives. The DIPTC currently provides counsel in patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret and privacy law and it is a member of the USPTO Law School Clinic Certification Program in trademark. The DIPTC is a semester long clinic that operates both terms. It is structured around a seminar that meets twice weekly for 1½ hours, as well as weekly supervision sessions.
