If you have or will have a degree in engineering, computer sciences, or the hard sciences (chemistry, biology, physics and related disciplines), you can take the Patent Office’s Registration Exam to become a Patent Agent. Patent agents can make up to $20,000 a year more than similarly situated engineers and scientists. The exam is available virtually on-demand via computer. Becoming a patent agent can also be a step toward a career as a Patent Attorney.
If this sounds intriguing, come join the Practicing Law Institute (PLI) for a presentation by Mark Dighton, PLI’s Director of Law School Relations and a director of its Patent Office Exam Course.
Workshop participants will learn about:
- Careers for patents agents, what the work is like and where you can find it
