Drafting Winning Patents Workshop

PRG is excited to introduce a new Intermediate-Level Course for Patent Attorneys and Agents: Drafting Winning Patents Workshop. The first offering of this course will take place September 10-11, 2018 at the Executive Conference Center in Arlington, Virginia. Tuition for this 2-day course is $1699 through the registration deadline of August 31, 2018. 

This two-day Workshop is the perfect course for recent USPTO Exam passers or for those who have less than 3 years’ experience in drafting patent applications. The course is valuable for private or corporate practitioners with some patent experience who desire to polish their patent drafting skills.

Expert PRG Faculty will discuss strategies for preparing winning patent applications, from the initial invention disclosure to application filing. In addition to claim drafting strategies, the course will cover subjects including:

  • drafting the specification to satisfy the enablement and written description requirements;
  • using the specification to support broad claim interpretation; and
  • avoiding inadvertent disclaimer.

The course will discuss the most recent USPTO procedures, PTAB rulings, and Federal Circuit decisions, including functional claiming and avoiding Alice/101 issues. Faculty will also explore how to draft applications with a view to litigation.

The course format will allow students to meet with faculty in small groups to discuss claim drafting issues arising in their particular technical disciplines, and will include hands-on drafting exercises and individual faculty feedback.
