Becoming a Patent Lawyer in California
« on: Jun 13th, 2006, 11:48pm »

I am an engineer/patent agent in California and I am considering becoming a patent lawyer.  My question is:
 
If I plan to only use a JD to practice patent law, am I still required to complete all law school requirements, or can I take a narrow range of courses specific to patent law and sit for the California Bar Exam?
 
Thanks!

You're going to have to qualify fully in the same way as every other California attorney candidate.
