B559 Patent Prosecution

Description Patent prosecution involves counseling with clients to understand their inventions, drafting patent applications designed to optimize legal protections for the inventions, and advocating for the grant of respective patents before U.S. and foreign patent offices. In the process of doing so, a weave of federal statutes, regulations, and case law must be taken into account in crafting and prosecuting patent applications that maximize clients' rights. This course will provide a complete overview of the patent process and will emphasize practical skills that are the foundation for effective patent prosecution.

Note This course satisfies the professional skills requirement.
