Patent Agents and Technical Specialists
The Patent Agents and Technical Specialists Committee is a new committee that aims to address the unique needs of an important subset of the Boston Patent Law Association membership. Committee members range from technical specialists entering the field of patent law to career patent agents. The Committee will organize and execute informational seminars, panels, and round table discussions that are of interest to its membership. Topics may include issues in patent law, patent office practice, professional development, and areas pertinent to non-attorney practitioners. The Committee will also work in collaboration with the New Lawyers and Law Students Committee and other committees, as appropriate, in fulfilling its mission.
The Committee will actively seek suggestions for event topics from its membership. All BPLA members and, often, non-members, are welcome at committee functions.
