You've passed the Patent Bar, Now What?

Having a license to practice is just the beginning. Now you need to learn how to navigate the many steps of Patent Prosecution. Knowing the rules is one thing, knowing how to do it in real life is quite another thing all together.

Designed With New Patent Practitioners In Mind

Everything You Need To Know To Start Practicing

This course will provide all the tools necessary to hit the ground running. At the end of this course students should have a strong grasp on the day to day basics of patent practice, and a catalogue of examples and templates to draw upon for a variety of the most common and likely occurrences that real life will throw at a patent practitioner.

“As a newly minted patent agent, this course is a must have! The course is packed with useful tips and strategies, not to mention an invaluable collection of templates, claim exercises and six months access to the Invent plus Patent software. This is the second course I have taken with John and Gene and simply put, they are the gold standard with respect to patent related education.”

"Gene and John have done for patent practice training what they have done for taking the patent bar exam: they break down the essentials; they provide on-point and clear materials; and they direct you through the meat and bones of patent practice. After taking the course, I now feel I can begin patent practice with the skills and confidence I need (and did not have) after passing the patent bar. The live format, I felt, was invaluable. Unlike static training videos, the live format engages you. Your questions are answered, and you work through the materials as if you were there in-person with them, getting expert advice. I cannot overstate how much more effective I found this format. The materials will be referenced  for many years, and I now look forward to taking these skills out to the greater world of patent practice."
