2019 Patent Prosecution Boot Camp
May 13 to 15, 2019
Philadelphia , PA, United States
Are you interested in staying current on patent prosecution practice or involved in cross-disciplinary practice? Are you a new or junior lawyer, a patent agent, or a technical advisor? Are you a foreign practitioner who wants to understand and speak the language of the USPTO and US practitioners when sending instructions on a US case or when receiving instructions on a local case?
If your answer is “yes” to any of the above questions, or if you simply love patent law, please join us at the Loews Philadelphia for this 2.5-day patent prosecution seminar, which is being held immediately before AIPLA’s Spring Meeting.
Now in its 20th year, AIPLA’s Patent Prosecution Boot Camp is a comprehensive, CLE-accredited seminar that includes instructional lecture-style sessions with practical tips on U.S. and international patent preparation and prosecution, as well as hands-on interactive workshops that will walk you through drafting claims and responding to office actions. To ensure that the workshops are relevant to your practice, they are held in smaller groups according to technology backgrounds: (1) Biotechnology/Chemical, (2) Electrical/Software, and (3) Mechanical.
Day 1 focuses on preparation of a patent application.
Day 2 focuses on prosecution of the application to grant.
Day 3 is a half-day program dedicated to more advanced topics such as petitions, appeals, post-grant proceedings, and international practice.
