Patent examining offers an exciting and unusual opportunity to combine scientific and technical expertise with legal skills. Successful candidates will receive comprehensive training and mentoring support to develop the legal skills required for the role. Patent Examiners combine these skills together with their technical knowledge and analytical ability to establish if an invention is new and inventive and whether, or not, the application satisfies various other legal requirements.
If you would like to hear more about becoming an Associate Patent Examiner, or what it’s like to work at the IPO, we will be holding an information session on Thursday 25th March 2021 between 6pm - 7pm.
