Advanced Patent & Licensing Seminar
BSKB offers a two-week Advanced Patent and Licensing Seminar (APLS) in the autumn. In addition to lectures, the APLS features workshops that illustrate the more advanced concepts in patent prosecution, claim interpretation, and validity and patent infringement issues. Special attention is paid to the changes in U.S. patent law that have occurred with the implementation of the America Invents Act.
Registration for the Advanced Patent and Licensing Seminar is limited so that this program may be conducted in an advantageously small seminar format. The 2012 seminar included participants from China, Germany, Japan, Korea, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Taiwan and the United States.
BSKB strives to help our seminar participants enjoy, appreciate and experience the American way of life and culture in the Washington, DC area. In addition to the academic experience, APLS participants gain the opportunity to explore the Washington, DC area, and to learn about the other cultures represented among the group. Many friendships and business relationships are made during the course of the program and last long after the program concludes.
To encourage those relationships, BSKB arranges several evening activities throughout the course of the program. These activities include an opening dinner, a weekend retreat outside of the Washington, DC area, a cultural event and dinner, and a closing banquet.
The 2013 Advanced Patent & Licensing Seminar will be held September 23 through October 4, 2013. Graduates of the Summer Patent Seminar and other similarly qualified applicants are invited to attend.
More information about the seminar can be found in the 2013 APLS brochure.
