Steps to Becoming a Patent Attorney or Patent Agent:


Check Qualifications

To qualify for the Patent Bar Exam, you need a background in science or engineering.  This typically includes a bachelor's degree in one of the qualifying degrees. To find out if you meet the requirements, take a look at our Patent Bar Requirements page. You may also download and read the official USPTO packet while there. By reviewing these two resources, you'll be able to discern for yourself if you qualify or what you need to do in order to qualify.



It's best to start preparing for the exam before you apply to take it.  That's because once you apply a 90-day window is triggered. And you'll have to take the exam before that 90-day window period ends. Depending on your schedule and other commitments, 90-days may not be enough time for you to prepare for the exam. Therefore, it's suggested that you get through at least part of Step II of our course before applying.



To apply for the Patent Bar exam, you'll need to fill out the official registration form along with submitting the fees. Depending on your qualifications, you may need to include transcripts, experience, and more.  Typically you'll hear back from the USPTO within a few weeks. Use that time to continue with your preparations.


Exam date

Once you've been accepted to take the Patent Bar exam, you'll need to schedule your exam date. You can do this through the Prometric testing agency nearest you.  You have 90-days to take the exam once you've been accepted. Use the time to finish with your preparations.


Pass the Exam

At this point all your hard work will pay off as you sit for and pass the exam.  It's a full day exam with 2 sessions each with 3 hours.  Your test will be at a Prometric testing center administered from a computer. You'll have access to the MPEP and any currently tested supplements in PDF form.  We provide you with the tools you need to pass the Patent Bar Exam.  If you prepare with us, but don't pass, you may qualify to continue our course for another 6 months at no additional cost.
