Patent Agent Program

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 must be eligible to take the patent bar. Please refer to the Patent Bar below for requirements to take the patent bar.

The Patent Agent Program is a year-long program that 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 IP Clinic generally runs on Saturdays, and the course (one each semester) is normally offered on a Tuesday evening. The Patent Agent Program begins at the end of August and goes until the end of March.
