This is entirely hearsay, but I think I've heard that the patent bar requires majoring in a science and also doing field work of some kind? Or maybe that's just what some IP firms require.I'm really just avoiding studying, so hopefully someone more knowledgeable will come along to confirm or deny.
I'm hearing varying opinions on this.Philosophy major/Bioengineering minor.Given that I minored, rather than majored, in Bioengineering, would I be at a severe disadvantage if i wanted to get into the transactional side of IP law? Or will it not really matter, so long as I ultimately sit for the patent bar?
You can still do IP without a hard science degree. Only patent prosecution requires the patent bar. You can still do litigation for IP without the patent bar and without a hard science degree.
