By satisfactorily completing appropriate subjects, a suitably qualified person may be accredited with satisfying all topic groups necessary for admission as a trade marks attorney, and all but one of the groups necessary for admission as a patent attorney (Melbourne Law School does not presently offer a subject accredited by the Professional Standards Board (PSB) for Topic Group G). Applicants seeking registration as a patent attorney and/or trade marks attorney should indicate this on acceptance of your offer and seek advice from the PSB and the Law School on subject selection at the time of enrolment. For more information, please see the Professional Standards Board website at www.psb.gov.au.
