This program is directed to patent prosecuting and litigating attorneys and patent agents with little patent experience. It will focus on teaching the basics of claim drafting, patent application preparation and prosecution, as well as a review of recent developments in the law. A litigator’s perspective is presented to show how drafting and prosecution can influence the development, and often the outcome, of subsequent patent litigation. 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.

This three-day program will feature lectures each morning, followed by small clinic sessions in the afternoon. Both the lecture sessions and the clinics will follow the patent application process - from invention disclosure and patent preparation through prosecution and issuance to litigation/opinion drafting.
