The philosophy behind PLI’s Patent Bar Review Course is, like so many of the best things in life, so obvious that it’s ingenious. They want you to pass the PTO Exam, so every element of the course is Exam-focused — from the structure, to the materials, to the lectures. The Course concentrates only on what you need to know to pass the Exam. You don’t need a distracting survey of patent law. What you need — and will find with PLI — is a combination of targeted resources that zero in quickly and confidently on the issues, problems, questions and strategies that will enable you to ace this major test. And you’ll find that same focus, and that quality and integrity, whether you take a live or home-study version of PLI’s Patent Bar Review.

Whether you order a live or homestudy course, you get the same great content:

  • A full set of the written materials,
  • All of the lectures in advance on audio CDs,
  • Our first-of-its-kind interactive software, PatWare, which will take you through hundreds and hundreds of questions in a format that simulates the actual Exam.
  • If you order a homestudy course, you will also get the same lectures as on the audio CDs, or as you would hear at a live course, on CD-ROMs or DVDs (your option). If you like, you can have the best of both worlds by ordering a live course AND the homestudy DVDs or CD-ROMS. You then only pay 50% of the usual course price for the homestudy disks.

  • John and Gene have a talent for making patent law interesting and entertaining. A rare gift, to say the least.” — Brendan Jones, Foley Hoag LLP; Boston course 2008
  • I am writing to thank you so much for helping me in preparation for the PTO exam! I am very happy to let you know that I passed the PTO exam on the 1st try! I couldn’t pass the exam without taking the PLI class. I was planning to study on my own, but I was so frustrated since I was an engineer with no training in law at all, and I felt great difficulty in preparing for the exam. The PLI class greatly helped me to understand the key points and guided me step by step to pass the exam. I would like to especially thank you for your quick and detailed responses to my questions! I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your help and I would highly recommend the PLI class to anyone I know.” — Yi Sun Wilkinson, Ph.D. in Engineering and instructor in Electrical Engineering at Northwestern Polytechnic University; homestudy course 2008
