To become a Patent Attorney you must pass an examination administered by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) which is a federal administrative agency that is part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. Currently, the examination, which is referred to as the Patent Bar Exam or the Registration Exam, is a computer-based 100 question multiple choice examination. It can be taken on-demand at various commercial testing centers located throughout the country. You must have a science background to be eligible to take the examination.
