That’s right, it’s after Labor Day!  That means it is time to take care of a very important task — register today to join PRG 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.

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 America Invents Act (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 a course that is critical for any attorney or agent who wants to pursue validity challenges at the USPTO.  The three-day “Post-Grant Patent Practice: Review, Reexamination, Reissue, and Supplemental Examination” course provides comprehensive training on indispensable tools for patent prosecutors and litigators, including new tools created by the AIA:

  • Ex parte reexamination
  • Inter partes reexamination
  • Post-grant review (new under the AIA)
  • Inter partes review (new under the AIA)
  • Transitional program to review business method patents (new under the AIA)
  • Reissue
  • Supplemental examination (new under the AIA)

The course covers strategies, tactics, best practices, and case studies, as well as the statutory and regulatory framework for the AIA’s new review proceedings.

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!  Act today — the hotel registration deadline is October 3.
