Patent Lawyers

Exploring This Job

Since patent law combines the areas of science/technology and law, there are a number of ways you can explore this field. To investigate the law aspect of this career, try to get a part-time job or internship with a law office in your area. You will probably be performing tasks such as filing papers, photocopying, and answering phones, but this experience will give you an idea of what working in a law office is like. If you can't find such a job, try locating a lawyer in your area with whom you could do an information interview. Even if the lawyer is not a patent lawyer, he or she may be able to give you some insights into the practice of law and the experience of law school.
