How Your BA in English Can Help Your Patent Law Practice


Many people enter law school with non-technical backgrounds - bachelor’s degrees in English, History, Political Science, or Philosophy -- and then find themselves litigating patent cases with complex technical issues. Join us for a panel discussion with three of the Bay Area’s top patent litigators, who will talk about how to practice patent law successfully without a technical background and how approaching patent law with a non-technical background can even be an asset.
