Inventors: Learn how to draft your patent claims

Claim drafting is perhaps the most important part of protecting your invention. Learn from the experts at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) as they teach the basics of claim drafting through an interactive workshop. Attendees will learn about the importance of drafting claims to the success of a patent application, and will develop a better appreciation of how a patent examiner views a claim during the course of examination. This event is free and open to the public so register early.

Attendees should have an intermediate knowledge of the intellectual property system, and patents specifically.  It is recommended that attendees complete the previous sessions “Learn the basics of intellectual property with a focus on patents” and “Learn how to draft your patent application” before taking this workshop.
