Being a Patent Agent is an excellent alternative career for professional with science, engineering or technical qualification!

In India, there are two types of professionals who can file and prosecute patents before the
Indian Patent Office (IPO). The first, a “patent agent,” registered with the IPO. The second, a “patent lawyer” or “patent attorney”, has, in addition, earned a law degree and passed a bar exam, which allows him / her to represent clients in the courts. To become a patent agent you must possess a science / technical degree and pass the patent agent exam conducted by the IPO. In the event, that you possess a science / technical degree and have not passed the patent agent exam, you still can opt for a career in patent law and perform key tasks such as, searching, drafting of patent applications, drafting response to office actions, etc. You will be able to file and prosecute patents either after you clear the patent agent exam and / or earn a law degree from a recognized university.

As a patent professional you can find job opportunities in many settings, not just at law firms.
Patent professionals work in corporate, knowledge process outsourcing companies, IP law firms, state and central governments (including Indian Patent Office), private institutes, and research organizations. READ MORE.
