Cerian Jones from Urquhart-Dykes & Lord LLP in Cardiff has very generously offered to run a workshop for us, entitled: ‘The A to Z of drafting and filing a UK patent application’. There are only two spaces left, so please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible if you would like to attend!
This will be followed by the long anticipated Cardiff social event starting from 6pm onwards in Brew Dog bar, near to Cardiff Central railway station. For those of you unable to attend the workshop, please feel free to join us for drinks. The social is kindly being subsidised by CIPA, so everyone will get their first drink free!
‘The A to Z of drafting and filing a UK patent application’
This interactive and relaxed session will investigate the whole process of drafting a patent application, from when a client first walks through the door with a new invention right up to the point of filing at the UK IPO/EPO. The session will include advice such as how to structure the specification, what to consider for each section of the document, the minimal requirements for getting a filing date, and thoughts on how to approach drafting (e.g. do you write the claims or description first?). The session will include some core skills practice as well as covering some important legal points and offering practical advice that will be helpful in both exams and practice. A senior UK IPO examiner will also be joining us to provide insight from the Examiner’s perspective.
