PLI's Fundamentals of Patent Prosecution 2015

San Francisco, CA

PLI's Fundamentals of Patent Prosecution 2015 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 (Day 1), through prosecution, issuance and beyond (Day 2) to litigation/opinion drafting (Day 3). Homework is different for each location and is specially designed to complement Chicago, New York City and San Francisco. Homework must be completed and submitted upon registering on-site at the program.

The lectures are designed to provide a review of the patent preparation and prosecution process and explain:

  • How to decide which elements of the invention should be included in the patent application and which aspects should be featured in the claims
  • How to prosecute an application to obtain allowance of an enforceable patent
  • How to interview an Examiner
  • How to use reissues, reexamination supplemental examinations, Inter Partes review and other post-issuance proceedings
  • How to anticipate patent litigation issues during the patent prosecution process
  • How to approach patent opinion drafting
