And now a message from the shameless commerce division, brought to you by the #1 Patent Bar Review Course in the Nation… the PLI Patent Bar Review Course.

Our busy Summer Tour 2010 kicked off in New York City on May 12, 2010, and this week we will be on the other side of the country in San Jose, California, for a class at Santa Clara University from May 24-28, 2010.  The next stop as John White and I criss-cross the country will be Orange County, California, from June 9-13, 2010.  After that we don’t have another live course until mid-July in Boston, and then we wrap up our summer travels in Chicago at the beginning of August.

Our Orange County location is hosted at Whittier Law School and for me is one of the highlights of the year, and for a limited time PLI is offering a 20% discount for those who sign up to attend the Orange Country course in Costa Mesa, California.  If you are interested in a live course this is a great opportunity, to jump start your patent bar study preparation and get in some fun in the sun.  To take advantage of the 20% discount you need to call the PLI Patent Bar Review Hotline at 888.296.5973 by the close of business Eastern Time on Wednesday, May 26, 2010.

I absolutely love Southern California, and I am partial to Orange County where I have spent part of every summer since I first taught summer classes at Whittier Law School in 1999.  Surprisingly, the Costa Mesa, California patent bar review course is the most economical live course to attend.  PLI gets a good deal on the Marriott just down the street from Whittier Law School, and there is an even cheaper La Quinta Inn on Harbor Blvd. that is within walking distance to the Law School.  There are also other hotels in the nearby area, and plenty of reasonably priced restaurants nearby as well.  I personally get my fill on Carl’s Jr., which is my favorite fast food hamburger of all time.  Of course, if you rent a car or are up for taking public transportation via bus you can get down to Newport Beach where there are some excellent restaurants as well as many good, fast food places that won’t break the bank.

In any event, for those who attend the Orange County patent bar review course, I will be having a resume and job finding presentation on Friday, June 11, 2010, at 5pm.  For whatever reason whenever we have the course at Whittier Law School we get a lot of engineers, scientists and at least several PhDs.  John and I refer to this course as “the agent course” because most of those who attend are not attorneys.  So if you are new to the subject matter you will be surrounded by highly motivated and highly educated individuals who typically are in the same boat as you.

So if you are going to join us in beautiful Orange County be sure and sign up by Wednesday, May 26, 2010 to take advantage of the 20% discount.  Also be sure to bring your resume with you.  I am always happy to try and offer suggestions on resumes, cover letters and creating a strategy to find a job.
