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.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course, not only for the sheer volume and quality of the learning I enjoyed, but also for the personally-focused attention I received, not only from Gene and John, but also from Renée, who ensured the course ran like a well-oiled machine. In their own amiable, relaxed and humorous way, John and Gene walked me through all aspects of practical practice, from client intake, to virtually every Office Action imaginable – in all cases, I felt like both had “been there, done that” and knew exactly what they were talking about. More importantly, they were able to get me to understand how to walk-the-walk of a reasonably-seasoned patent attorney, as well – without having to endure the painful missteps and pitfalls associated with experiencing the same either as a solo practitioner or as a “newbie” in a big firm: They covered the gamut of likely practice errors and how to avoid them. Simply put, I can’t say enough good things about the course: It’s money well-spent!

“I thoroughly enjoy taking this on-line course which covers all areas of patent practice. One thing that impresses me this course was in a live format. Signing in through Go-to-meeting, I joined the video conference with Gene and John. I had their live videos presented on my screen which made me feel like they were sitting in a same classroom with me and talking to me so that I concentrated on the course better. Moreover, there was a Q&A section at the end of every class. Gene and John took the time to answer all participants’ questions that were both related to the course and the issues we met in our real work. Gene and John are not presenters, but true instructors. They are so engaging, have relevant stories to share, and have effective strategies from their extraordinary experiences. Over the duration of the course, I have gained a lot of knowledge and practical strategies that are helpful to my daily work. It is great to take this course and learn from Gene and John.”
