Our Summer Intern Spotlight series features brief interviews with students who have been learning about intellectual property law and the work we do for the firm’s clients.
Hi Blake Salesin! Where are you in school? Do you have a favorite subject?
A: I’m a rising sophomore at Boston College. I really enjoy International Politics.
What is your interest in intellectual property?
A: IP can be protected internationally and provides businesses with the right to their own ideas and products.
What do you hope to learn with us this summer?
A: I hope to learn more about how Dobrusin protects the patents of its clients from any infringement, domestic or international.
What have you learned so far?
A: I have learned so much! The first day I received a crash course on all things IP and from there on have focused on different aspects of IP law. Many of the information and skills I have learned have been acquired through hands-on work, including filing certificates of correction, proofing patents, and labeling patent drawings.
What are your hobbies?
A: My hobbies include ice hockey, writing, and running.
Do you participate in any extracurricular activities?
A: I am a member of the opinions section at The Gavel, a news publication on Boston College’s campus. As an avid ice hockey player, I teach at the Detroit Skating Club. Additionally, I am a graduate of Junior Leadership Oakland XI.
Anything else you would like to share?
A: I have a Golden Retriever named Gus and I am looking forward to having a great summer working at The Dobrusin Law Firm!
