Title: Looking into Patent Law Career
Post by othur on Jun 13th, 2007, 6:52pm
Hi guys,

I am new to this forum and need some advice regarding law school.

I have a B.S.E.E and an M.S.E.E with a gpa of 3.7 from a good university with research experience and a few published papers, and have recently started a new job with the pto. I am considering a degree in law in a year or two. I want to study and practice ultimatly in northern california, Silicon Valley as I have completed an intership in that area. I have read a few things about student associates and the such and am looking for some advice on how to pursue patent law.

For the next year or two:
Prepare for the Patent Bar Exam and pass it while working at USPTO
Study LSAT and get the LSAT score as high as possible while working at USPTO

Apply for a law school and attend the law school while working at USPTO

By the time when you graduate from law school and pass the bar exam, you will be in a great position to practice the patent law as a registered patent lawyer.

Is it better to craft rejections and objections for patent you did not write or respond to office actions on patent you did not write?

That is the question.............................
