Webinar-Drafting a Patent Application from a Paragraph (EE/CS)
Part of Volpe Koenig's CLE Webinar Series, ,this program was presented on Thursday, September 8, 2022.
Drafting solid, durable patent applications is both a science and an art. Patent attorneys must translate highly complex technical information into clear, consistent and accurate patent documents to properly support claim drafting and to allow for rapid comprehension by the examiner, subsequent practitioners, and licensing and litigation personnel. From conducting inventor interviews through organizing the detailed description and drafting the figures, this advanced CLE course provides a practical process for writing strong patent applications to avoid issues before and after patent allowance.
Attendees will gain a better understanding of how to:
- Avoid common pitfalls encountered by even the most experienced application drafter
- Write for clarity
- Write to support claim amendments
- Identify and avoid potential red flags such as inconsistent terminology, dangling concepts, and other issues
- Draft the application to avoid rejections under 101
