On the search for talent: Page White and Farrer to exhibit at the University of Oxford careers fair

Service: Patents

Sectors: AI and data science

On Tuesday 19 November, Page White and Farrer will be exhibiting at the University of Oxford careers fair ‘Jobs for Mathematicians’.

We will be looking for talented individuals to join our team of intellectual property experts. We are particularly interested in those who are studying in the fields of mathematics, computer science, data science and machine learning.


Our clients include some of the most recognised brands in the world as well as highly innovative AI tech startups and scale-ups, many of whom employ software engineers alongside research teams of mathematicians or data scientists.


To help them protect their intellectual property, we are looking for graduates with specialist knowledge of:

  • applied mathematics;
  • computer science;
  • data science; and
  • machine learning.


A patent attorney requires a top STEM degree and a high level of skill and understanding in the technical fields of his or her clients.


To qualify as a patent attorney, no legal background is required as the necessary legal skills and qualifications are obtained over a training period of typically 3-5 years in a highly supportive environment. Written advocacy and the ability to legally define an invention are specialist skills which will be learned over the course of the training period (and beyond)!
