Science Patent Lawyer

When someone invents a new and unique scientific technique or product, they move quickly to secure a patent to protect their work from being copied or sold by others. This is where a science patent lawyer comes in. On behalf of the client, a patent lawyer presents a case to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. To be a science patent lawyer you must have a degree or strong background in science or engineering, a law degree (J.D.), and you must pass an exam on patent law, informally known as the “patent bar.” Some people who have the science background but not the law degree can opt to work as science patent agents. A patent agent is someone who has passed the patent bar but lacks a law degree, meaning they can practice patent law but not other types of law.
