Did you know you can sit for the patent bar exam and practice patent law without a law degree?

Consider applying for the new Master of Legal Studies’ Patent Practice degree program for the fall 2014 semester. This program, offered by ASU’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, is looking for full and part time students to start in the fall or spring semester. As a new program, there are ample scholarships available for the fall 2014 semester.

Having patent expertise and skills opens up many new career opportunities. Additionally, the median salary for patent agents having five or fewer years of experience is $95,000 and increases to $145,500 for those having more than 15 years of experience, according to the American Intellectual Property Law Association’s 2013 report. As an engineer with this type of master’s degree you would be eligible to sit for the patent bar exam and to become a registered patent agent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office in just a few years.
