Patent Workshop presented by the Practicing Law Institute (PTI)

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
  • The qualities and skills that will help you enjoy and be successful in this field
  • The latest info on the Patent Office’s Registration Exam

Date: Monday, April 15
