Track 2: Non Law Students

The IP Clinic applied for and received approval from the United States Patent and Trademark Office to offer a patent agent program.

To be eligible for the patent agent program, students need to be eligible to take the patent bar. Please refer to the patent bar subpage for requirements in order to take the patent bar.

The Patent Agent Program is a year-long program and includes: 1) patent bar preparation course for one semester; 2) patent prosecution skills course for one semester; and 3) participation in the patent clinic for two semesters.

The Clinic generally runs on Saturdays, and the course (one each semester) is normally during one weekday (e.g. Tuesday night). The patent agent program begins at the end of August and goes until the end of March.
