Patent Office Practice


The Patent Office Practice Committee focuses on all aspects of proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) such as the formal requirements for the preparation and prosecution of patent applications, professional ethical rules governing practice before the USPTO, and new rules and guidelines promulgated by the USPTO. The purpose of the Patent Office Practice Committee is to inform and seek input from its Committee members regarding the latest developments in Patent Office Practice. The Committee also provides a forum for speakers and members to discuss these developments and their practical effect on patent law practice. The Patent Office Practice Committee periodically presents seminars covering topics relevant to Patent Office Practice at which all (members and non-members) are welcome. The Committee, through its meetings, seeks to promote the professional development of BPLA members. We welcome suggestions for topics of discussion at seminars and meetings.
