Agents and attorneys: Learn to think like a patent examiner

If you are a patent attorney or agent, it helps to think like an examiner. Registration for the Stakeholder Training on Examination Practice and Procedure (STEPP) agent/attorney three-day course on April 20-22 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, has been extended until March 8.

Our trainers will lead this course based on material developed for our employees. During this event, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a roundtable discussion and meet directly with our Commissioner for Patents Drew Hirshfeld and Deputy Commissioner for International Patent Cooperation Valencia Martin Wallace.

The training is limited to those who have passed the patent bar. This is because it will make use of statutes, rules, and guidelines relevant to practicing before the USPTO. Priority will be given to those who have most recently passed the patent bar.

The USPTO has received CLE credit in Puerto Rico and Florida for this course.

Use the STEPP sign-up form to register to attend.

You can learn more about the program and upcoming sessions on the STEPP page of the USPTO website.
