The United States Patent and Trademark Office registration test (USPTO), more commonly referred to as the "patent bar", is the test one must pass to be eligible to practice before USPTO. Individuals who pass the test are referred to as either "patent attorney" or "patent attorney". The patent attorney successfully passes the patent bar and is a member of the bar association in at least one state. The patent agent is not a member of the state bar, but has passed the patent bar. It is not necessary to have a degree in law to become a patent agent. Anyone can become a patent agent once they meet the seating requirements of the patent bar exam.
To be eligible for the patent bar exam, a person must have a technical background, as indicated by your college degree and / or courses of study. There are two ways to qualify:
- You have a Bachelor's degree in one of a number of degrees listed from an accredited university. Currently, USPTO qualification degrees include biology, electrochemical engineering, biochemistry, physics, engineering physics, botany, textile technology, general engineering, computer science, aeronautical engineering, geological engineering, electronics technology, Agricultural engineering, industrial engineering, food technology, biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, general chemistry, ceramic engineering, mineral engineering, marine technology, chemical engineering, mining engineering, microbiology, engineering Civil, nuclear engineering, molecular biology, computer engineering, petroleum engineering, organic chemistry, and electrical engineering.
- She obtained a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution in a non-listed specialization and can demonstrate equivalent scientific and technical training for a degree in one of the major majors mentioned. To qualify according to this option, a person must have significant semester hours in Engineering and Solid Sciences.
Prometric is currently conducting patent tape checks. The submitted computer includes 100 multiple-choice questions, only ninety of which were recorded. To pass the exam, the candidate must correctly answer seventy percent (sixty-three) of the ninety record questions. Each of the questions recorded in previous registration tests has been tested and analyzed by USPTO to ensure that the question provides a useful evaluation of the candidate's legal and scientific qualifications.
