Falls Church, VA, San Diego, CA - March 3, 2010 - Birch, Stewart, Kolasch & Birch, LLP (BSKB) announced today that the 28th Annual Summer Patent Seminar (formerly the Summer Training Program) will be held June 12 – July 9, 2010 in Falls Church, VA.
BSKB’s Summer Patent Seminar provides a comprehensive overview of the U.S. patent system including preparing, prosecuting, interpreting and enforcing patents. The program also covers more complex issues such as litigation and interference practice. Classes are taught by knowledgeable
and experienced IP professionals and the seminar focuses on practical problems encountered in obtaining and enforcing U.S. patents.
BSKB partner and Summer Patent Seminar chair Gerald M. Murphy, Jr. stated, “We are excited that our month long Summer Patent Seminar is still meeting the needs of our clients and professionals in the IP field after 25 years. Our goal is to educate participants on the basic principles of U.S. patent law so that they can work more efficiently with U.S. patent counsel and obtain strong U.S. patents in a cost effective manner.”
The seminar is beneficial to anyone who deals with the U.S. patent system on a regular basis. A typical seminar class is between 50 to 60 participants; about half of the attendees are foreign patent attorneys and the other half in-house individuals who work for major international technology companies.
In addition to the academic component, the seminar’s four week schedule includes social events, tours, and a four day weekend over the Fourth of July holiday that allows participants to further explore the Washington, DC area. For more information go to BSKB Summer Patent Seminar.
