Registration is now open to attend the Jan. 9-11 USPTO Attorney and Agent Stakeholder Training on Examination Practice and Procedure (STEPP) at the Texas Regional U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in Dallas.
This training, which will make use of statutes, rules, and guidelines relevant to practicing before the USPTO, is limited to those who have passed the patent bar, and priority will be given to those who have recently passed the patent bar. The course is led by USPTO trainers and is based on material developed for training patent examiners and other employees.
STEPP courses are planned throughout the year for attorneys and agents, and also for inventors. Courses are held in person across the country, and some are held virtually. For more information, and to see the schedule of upcoming courses, visit the STEPP page of the USPTO website.
January 9 through 11, 2018
