A “bootcamp” can be defined as an intensive training program for improving one’s skills in a particular subject area. The 6th Annual Post Grant Bootcamp (PGB) will start with a brief overview of post grant issues and will then take an in-depth look at post grant procedures at the USPTO (such as inter partes review, post-grant review and supplemental examination). The format includes lectures and hands-on workshops where participants will experience conference calls with mock Administrative Patent Judges, and a mock final hearing. Participants will work together with the aim of improving their skills in the post grant world.

CLE Credit Available

Estimated 16 hours of Virginia CLE credit available, including 1 hour of ethics credit. Participants can use the Virginia credit approval form to apply for credit in their respective states.
