May 13, 2014

Founder Elizabeth Yang has been selected as Grand Award Judge for the 2014 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. The Fair will be held from May 13 – May 14 in the Los Angeles Convention Center.


Intel ISEF is the largest international pre-college science competition in the world and Yang will judge the Electrical and Mechanical Engineering category.

 

Millions of high school students around the globe compete to enter Intel ISEF with over 1,700 fellow student scientists. The Fair provides an international platform for these students and their work.

Yang will join the group of experienced scientists, researchers and engineers chosen to judge the science projects this year. The judges will evaluate projects based on creativity and the presentation/interview. Numerous awards, the top award being the $75,000 Gordon E. Moore Award for the Best in Category, will be given to the winning finalists.


Yang is honored to serve as a judge for Intel ISEF, the world’s preeminent science competition. She views her participation as a chance to not only contribute to the Los Angeles community, as the Fair is held in a different city each year, but also to the international scientific community, as Intel ISEF contestants represent over 70 different countries, regions, and territories.


Yang further values this opportunity to remain involved in the science and engineering field. Just last month, she volunteered as judge for the 2014 California State Science Fair.

ELIZABETH YANG RECEIVES YOUNG FEMALE ENTREPRENEUR AWARD

June 20, 2014

Founder Elizabeth Yang was awarded the 2014 Young Female Entrepreneur Award on June 13 at the annual Women Mean Business: Legislative Update and Awards Luncheon in Pasadena. Yang received the award from State Senator Carol Liu in recognition of her outstanding achievements in the business world.


Every year, the Women Mean Business General Assembly attracts over 500 entrepreneurs to participate in an event that celebrates their contribution to business, politics, art, technology and community service.


Being both an Asian American and a woman, Yang represents two minority groups as an exemplary professional. She encourages all Asian American women to not give up hope and that “dreams will come true if you work hard at it.”  --Elizabeth Yang


Yang was born in the United States to Taiwanese parents. She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering/Computer Science (EE/CS), and worked for six years at the Raytheon Company as an electrical engineer designing radar systems for the B2 Bomber.


Yang later developed an interest in the legal field, and decided to go to law school. During law school, she would wake up at 4:30 AM, get to work at 6:00, leave work at 4:00 PM, and rush to her 6:00 PM classes. The candle burnt at both ends for four years.


Yang is now the founding partner of the Law & Mediation Offices of Elizabeth Yang and patent attorney, specializing in intellectual property law.

ELIZABETH YANG ATTENDS USPTO IP ATTACHÉ MEETING

May 8, 2015

Founder Elizabeth Yang recently attended a United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) Intellectual Property (IP) Attaché meeting on May 7.


The meeting was centered on global IP issues and featured several top attorneys in addition to IP Attachés assigned to China, India, Brazil, Mexico and Russia, among others. Key issues that were discussed included IP rights and enforcement in China, international trade secret protection and the future of global IP challenges.


“It was an honor to be able to attend – these issues are relevant in not only a local context but a global one as well,” Yang said. “As the world gets smaller, intellectual property is becoming an extremely important concept that extends beyond borders.”


The IP Attaché program consists of a group of intellectual property experts that represent the USPTO out of U.S. embassies overseas.
