Summer Job At USPTO?

I have a BSEE and will be finishing my first year of law school this May.
 
Does the USPTO do any summer hiring for someone in my position? Just want to work May, June, July, 1/2 Aug.
 
I looked at the USPTO website, but their summer internships seem to be geared towards high schoolers....
 
Any advice about whom I could contact directly?
 
Thanks,
Rob

Rob,
We are a patent search company that also offers internships to someone with your background.  We are right up the street from the Patent Office.  If you are interested in learning more just send me an e-mail (bbuehler@landon-ip.com).

perhaps the "summer intern" will be working on the very large project that was awarded to Landon IP on Sep 9, 2005? - go to http://www.uspto.gov/web/offices/ac/comp/proc/pctsearch/pctsearchhom.htm l for more details
 
the USPTO gives their examiners three 2-3 week "phases" of "Patent Academy" training over a period of about 1-1/2 to 2 years and requires a technical degree to be hired, to do the job, which includes performing PCT searches and completing related forms for inventors/applicants entering the international IP stage
 
however, now, the USPTO just wants to get the searches done by nearly anyone who knows about patents, since they are so far behind in their work and getting worse - it is important to keep this in mind when considering an "intern" position at Landon IP, since your work will probably be judged by Landon IP personnel as well as USPTO personnel, possibly affecting the status of the contract
