The US Patent Office is expanding its Patent Examiner Technical Training Program. The Patent Office is seeking voluntary assistance from technologists, scientists, engineers, and other experts from industry and academia to participate as guest lecturers and provide technical training and expertise to patent examiners regarding the state of the art.

Guest lecturers must have relevant, historic and current technical knowledge, including industry practices/standards in technological areas of interest. Guest lecturers must also have relevant technical knowledge, as well as familiarity with prior art and industry practices/standards in areas of technologies where such lectures would be beneficial.

So if you or someone you know has expertise or knowledge in a cutting edge area of technology, here's a chance to help an examiner out.

Having the right person to help you identify and protect your intellectual assets is critical.  The Law Office of Kathleen Lynch is designed to help businesses such as yours keep ahead of the game.   The first telephone consultation is free.  Email us at klynch@kliplaw.com.
