Patent lawyer to possess engineering degree?

Considering the unique field of Intellectuals Property Laws, will it not be proper for Intellectual Property lawyers in Indias to possess Engineering degree or degree in other field of science like geology, biochemist etc?

Considering today the grwoth of technology in every sphere of human activity there is no one such qualification you may restrict the application.

In this sense it's not just law or technology even Liberal Arts ,Economics or Management  qualification may be necessary from this perspective.

I think one is more difficult than the other, so everyone cannot get it.

Engineering degree is not required. The essential requirement is the minimum eligibility,  not the maximum eligibility. It gives the maximum number of eligible people to be available for selection than to a few. Everybody in the selection list does not fit for the point of view of the employer. He needs more to select the best.

It is the same question again and again in the last couple of weeks..

 

The main fact is becoming a patent agent or patent professional will not help to improve the technology innovation.. Inventor is the Subject Matter Expert, he / she would be knowing the subject better than anybody else.. Patent Agent will certainly help to draft & comply with Patent Act.. It should not really matter whether you are Science or Engg. Graduate...

 

Let us come to the other things..

 

Patent Registration is just a part of it.. Definitely, need to be legal background to understand all the matters related to Patent Act...

 

Enforcement is the major challenge

 

Commercialization & strategy to do business... 

 

Litigation 

 

If you look at overall life cycle of Patent.. Smart Legal Counsel is most required in all the areas...

Regards,

Nagaraj
