If you are an inventor considering filing or currently prosecuting a patent application, don't miss Part V of our Path to a Patent series. USPTO experts will discuss the parts of the claim, show examples of claim illustrations from issued U.S. patents, and help participants develop a better appreciation of how a patent examiner views a claim. This virtual event is free and open to the public, so register early.
To get the most out of this workshop, you should have an intermediate knowledge of the intellectual property system and of patents specifically. We recommend that you complete the previous sessions, “Part I: IP basics” and “Part IV: Learn how to draft your patent application” before attending.
