Dustin Dutchuk is a summer associate at Irwin IP. He is currently a 2L at the DePaul University College of Law, and is looking to have a focus in Patent Law. After passing the USPTO Registration Exam, Dustin began working in patent prosecution. He has since assisted in drafting various provisional and non-provisional applications, office action replies, and patent eligibility searches.

Upon graduating from the University of North Dakota in 2018, Dustin moved to Madrid, Spain. Working as a Language and Culture Assistant in a high school, he was given the opportunity to help students improve their English-speaking skills while simultaneously teaching them US culture and traditions. While living in Europe, he had great travel opportunities. This exposed him to many different cultures and experiences and gave him a mind opening life perspective.

For his undergraduate education, Dustin attended the University of North Dakota and majored in Biochemistry. His most rewarding undergraduate experience was writing his thesis, which was a year-long project. He explored the relationship between the pH in drinking waters and consumer preference and concluded it with a poster presentation. The project was rewarding in many ways because it developed research, writing and oral communication skills.

His interests include concerts, rollerblading and trying new foods.
