Students - All

If you are a student with an undergrad degree (or at least two years of coursework) in engineering, computer sciences or the hard sciences (chemistry, biology, physics, some related fields), and are interested in becoming a Patent Agent or Attorney, Practising Law Institute (PLI) invites you to a presentation by John White, Academic Director of PLI’s Patent Office Exam Course.

Topics for discussion include:
• The latest info on the Patent Office Exam,
• Who can take it,
• How it works, now that it’s on computer and “on demand,”
• When you should take it (you don’t need to…and probably shouldn’t…wait until you graduate),
• How the America Invents Act has impacted the Exam, and
• Recommendations on when and how to study for this very difficult Exam.
