USPTO Moves Ahead with Changes to Patent Bar Registration

Following a Request for Comments in March 2021, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) yesterday published a Federal Register Notice updating the General Requirements Bulletin (GRB) for admission to the registration exam to practice in patent cases before the Office. The Notice indicates that the USPTO considered all comments and based on the “overwhelming” support for the proposals is moving forward with implementing the changes. The Notice says the Office received 32 comments in response to the March request for comments.

USPTO’s Drew Hirshfeld on Proposed Changes to Requirements for Patent Bar Registration: It ‘Just Makes Sense’

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO or Office) earlier today published a Request for Comments in the Federal Register asking for public input into proposed changes to the General Requirements Bulletin for Admission to the Examination for Registration to Practice in Patent Cases Before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (GRB). The Office is considering changing the criteria applicable in ways that would streamline the process for both applicants and the Office of Enrollment and Discipline (OED), the office within the USPTO tasked with administering the Patent Bar Exam and implementing the rules pertaining to admission to practice before the Office.

The Patent Bar Exam: Everything You Need to Know

The patent bar exam is a multiple-choice examination made up of 100 questions. You will be given 3 hours to complete the first 50 questions and another 3 hours to complete the second 50 questions. The exam is on-demand and can be taken any time. The patent bar exam has recently been updated effective August 16, 2018, and the exam can be expected to be updated every year at least once. Thus, the patent bar exam has become a moving target. While it does not wildly shift overnight, or change in unannounced ways, gone are the days the exam would remain the same for many years.

USPTO to Update Patent Bar Exam in August 2018

“This is a mere change in form, not substance,” according to John White, principle lecturer in the PLI patent bar review course. “The PTO will start testing the current version of the MPEP, and stop testing the miscellaneous memos and the like that are currently tested. But all of those memos have now been incorporated into the new MPEP, so there’s no change of substance. Just a change in citations.”

Reflections of the Patent Bar Exam

Recently I took and passed, on my second attempt, the United States Patent & Trademark Office Registration (bar) Exam. It is a daunting experience but manageable with some occasional misery in the mix. The exam is offered once a year in Virginia on paper otherwise you schedule your own computer exam at a Prometric testing site. The total time needed to prepare for the exam is about 150 hours of solid study/course time. It is a hundred questions divided into two three-hour sessions with an hour break.

Reflections on Taking the Patent Bar Exam

If you are reading this article beyond the title, you are either preparing to take the USPTO’s patent bar exam or you are considering whether you should take the patent bar exam. Either way, the fact that you are looking for insight into how to pass yet another bar exam – after you’ve already passed your state’s bar exam – flies in the face of your earlier (and earnest) promise to yourself that the last exam you took was, in fact, the last exam you would ever take in your life. I feel your pain.

Everything You Need to Know About the Patent Bar Exam

In recent years the registration exam to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office has undergone significant change… There will be yet another update to the USPTO registration exam at the end of January 2014. The updated examination will additionally cover: (1) First-Inventor-to-File Final Rules; (2) Patent Law Treaties Implementation Act of 2012; and (3) Changes to Representation of Others Before the USPTO Final Rules. Thus, the exam that will be given beginning on or about January 21, 2014, will be substantially different than the examination given at the beginning of April 2011.
