I think I must also pass the state bar before sitting for the patent but that's pretty much it as far as requirements go. That being said, part of me really just wants to get a decent JD where it will be cheapest because I won't necessarily need a big name on that degree for the field I'm going into (I mean, I'm not trying to work for GE or anything!) But thank you- I will start searching around the forums for more info!
Whoah! Some wrong info up there^
1. You do not need a JD to sit for the patent bar.
2. You usually need a science or engineering degree (but not just any science or engineering degree, must be properly accrediteted, etc), but certain classes can count to meet this requirement. Be very careful when looking to see what counts though as this is not completley straight forward.
Please see --LinkRemoved-- for the correct info.
^^ This is the kind of research you should do both online and within these forums to determine info about the patent bar and job information about various schools if you have passed the patent bar.
