Location: Library Homer Rice Center (Ground Floor West)

Are you an inventor, an entreprenuer, a student or a researcher who is getting ready to apply for a patent or someone who is curious about patents? Before you talk to a manufacturer or the public about your invention, it is wise to get your idea protected. A good patent search will help you identify prior art references that are critical to the patentability of your invention. In this class, you will learn the patent basics as well as patent search strategies through hands-on exercises. Handouts are included. The class contains two parts:

  • Part One: Introduction to patents (including patentability requirements, identification of patent documents, patent classifications and patent search strategies)
  • Part Two: Patent search hands-on practice (including classification search using USPTO's PatFT/AppFT, and EPO's Espacenet; Hybrid search using classification and keywords)

We are offering this patent class on every 2nd Tue. of the month this summer. Please choose the date that fits your schedule and register it online:

  How to Obtain “Free” Legal Assistance on Filing Patent Applications
Location: Auditorium (Clough Commons)

You have a great idea and you want to get your invention protected before going further into the market. One way to protect your innovative idea is filing a patent application. Well, preparing for a patent application is complicated and filing a patent application is not inexpensive. Do you know that there are free legal assistance programs available to assist inventors in preparing and filing a patent application?

Welcome to this Information Session on How to Obtain “Free” Legal Assistance on Preparing and Filing Patent Applications for Inventors and Small Businesses. A USPTO staff attorney and a former patent examiner will be on hand to discuss Pro Bono programs at the Office, and answer questions about the patent process and provide information on how to obtain free legal assistance through the Georgia PATENTS Program. 

This event is free and open to everyone on campus and in the public. Registration is required. 

Light refreshments will be included.
