Protect University Innovations by Drafting High Quality Provisional Patent Applications

Poorly drafted provisional patent applications can be useless — or even worse, they can be used against you at conversion. According to the USPTO, nearly 170,000 provisional patent applications were filed in FY2019 — that’s about 466 provisional patent application filings each day. Provisionals are often devalued and tossed off as a quick and easy way to temporarily protect an invention, with minimal effort spent in drafting this application. But this early misstep can result in highly consequential problems during examination of the non-provisional application later.

That’s why Tech Transfer Central’s Distance Learning Division has secured a pair of experts from the Baker Donelson Law Firm in to bring you this critical webinar: Protect University Innovations by Drafting High Quality Provisional Patent Applications, scheduled for November 19th. You’ll learn best practices as well as common mistakes to avoid when drafting provisionals in this practical, detailed program.
