Event Details

This program is directed to patent prosecuting and litigating attorneys and patent agents with or without a Patent Office registration number and with little or no patent experience. The program will focus on teaching the basics of claim drafting, patent application preparation and prosecution, and also provide a review of recent developments in the law. A litigator’s perspective is included to show how drafting and prosecution can influence the development, and often the outcome, of subsequent patent litigation; and, conversely, how a litigator's perspective can inform drafting and prosecution. The clinics offer a unique supplement to the kind of hands-on mentoring that senior attorneys are hard-pressed to provide to less-experienced attorneys and agents.
