The course provides practical advice on how practitioners can spot issues and conform their conduct to best practice and the USPTO’s rules. This course is aimed at experienced IP practitioners who practice before the USPTO.   

The course will cover the USPTO’s regulatory power, as well as what constitutes practice before the USPTO under 37 CFR 11.5.  The presenter will also discuss the supervision requirements for supervising attorneys under 37 CFR 11.501-11.503, conflicts under 11.107-11.109, subject matter conflicts best practices, candor obligations under 37 CFR 11.303 and 11.18, and signature obligations under 37 CFR 1.4 and 2.193.
