The intersection of science, technology and patent law offers numerous career opportunities. The University of Minnesota Law School’s Master of Science in Patent Law Program addresses these opportunities with a one-year professional master’s degree program for scientists and engineers interested in pursuing a career in the field of patent law. Four building blocks form the foundation of the program: patent prosecution, innovation, value extraction, and portfolio management.
