Patent Application Filing Basics

Join us for a presentation on the basics of filing a patent application.  This session is designed for inventors, entrepreneurs, and those who would like to learn more about filing a patent application.  This session focuses on capturing your invention throughout your disclosure (e.g., specification, drawings, and claims) and will briefly discuss formality requirements (e.g., fonts sizes, margins, etc.).  Additionally, attendees should have a basic understanding of patents.  We encourage you to attend one of our Patent Lunch and Learn sessions prior to this event.  This event is free and open to the public.    Please bring your own lunch to enjoy during the session, lunch is not provided.  Space is limited. Please register here by January 24, 2018.
