Patent Law Career

Patent Law is a fascinating, profitable career field for many engineers and scientists looking for something other than the traditional career pathway. Being a part of this field will secure you a front row position on the cutting edge of science and technology.

From genetic engineering to computer software to light bulbs and even new engine components, people will always invent new things. Even more so, these inventions will always be labelled and traded as Intellectual Property (IP).
