When Emma Sirignano, ’15 J.D., first came to Notre Dame Law School, she was initially interested in copyright law. She took the semester-long Intellectual Property and Entrepreneurship Clinic class, where she worked on copyright status pieces for a nonprofit client and also worked on trademark applications for clinic clients.

She first heard of a trademark examiner when she attended a lecture by fellow alum, Brendan Regan, ’94, ’98 J.D., who is also an examining attorney at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
