This is a workshop! The goal is for individuals to get first-hand experience in patent drafting. The first Saturday (October 24, 2015) will focus on the nuts and bolts of drafting a provisional patent application, with a strong emphasis on strategies, building portfolios, costs and benefits, etc.
Two weeks later (November 7, 2015), Bob will lead group discussions to review some of the applications drafted by the attendees. Following that will be small group and individual mentoring sessions by Bob and other attorneys and agents from his office.
