Join us in southern California on October 17-23, 2012 for our Fall Advanced Courses Conference.  We’ll be offering 10 outstanding one-, two-, and three-day courses that set the industry standard for advanced patent education.

Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa in Indian Wells, CA.

Our Fall Conference, which will be held at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa in Indian Wells, CA, goes beyond the basics and gives you practical insights that you can apply immediately.  And all of our returning courses have been updated as needed to reflect the ongoing impacts on you and your practice of the AIA.  We’re also offering a special one-day course focusing solely on the AIA.  We’ll help you to avoid the dangers that the AIA poses to practitioners in all areas of patent law.

The Fall course line-up also includes one of our most popular courses for anyone who files patents before both the USPTO and the EPO. The two-day “Claim and Specification Drafting for a Single EPO/USPTO Patent Application” course gives attendees a comprehensive overview of the principles underlying the preparation and prosecution of patent applications in both the U.S. and Europe.  Among other topics, the course will:

  • Compare and contrast the often very different approaches of the USPTO and the EPO
  • Offer the “best practices” for preparing an application that is well-suited for filing in both the U.S. and Europe
  • Discuss the implications of the AIA on application drafting.

We’re offering an amazing room rate of only $169.00 per night, single or double, plus tax at this conference.  This rate is 20% less than what we were able to offer the last time we hosted our Advanced Courses Conference at this venue!
