Learn to argue before PTAB

If you are a patent practitioner, don’t miss this chance to learn how to argue before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). The Legal Experience and Advancement Program (LEAP) offers training on oral advocacy, covering topics such as the use of demonstratives, effective use of hearing time, decorum, and the logistics of an oral hearing. Training is available free of charge and via webinar. For more information and to register, please visit the LEAP web page.

The PTAB will grant up to 15 minutes additional argument time to parties that choose to participate in LEAP, depending on the length of a proceeding and the PTAB’s hearing schedule.

For questions about LEAP, please call 571-272-9797 or email leap@uspto.gov.
