Ethics of Working with Low Income Clients, Doing 
Unbundled Legal Work and Pro Bono Right​

​12:30 - 2:00 pm Eastern

  

 Course Description:
 
 
No worthy invention should be left unexamined due to the inability to afford a patent practitioner. Whether it be a device to hang doors more efficiently, a machine to make homemade sushi rolls faster, or a compound with the potential to treat neurodegenerative diseases, pro bono programs around the country offer inventors that exact opportunity.

Our webinar will bring together a panel of speakers from the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the Center for Intellectual Property Research, Maurer School of Law, Indiana University Bloomington, to discuss experiences related IP pro bono representation.

The AIPLA Special Committee on Pro Bono webinar will also provide an ethics update, curtsey USPTO Office of Ethics and Enrollment.
 
Presented by: Tim Rooney of Office of Enrollment and Discipline; Tara Ho of Office of Enrollment and Discipline; Casey Nemeck of Indiana University; and Daniel Bruzzone of Patterson Thuente IP
