Trademarks Practice

Course Description

Trademark preparation and prosecution is a high-level skill set requiring a wide knowledge base and efficiency. Students will build on their basic understanding of what a trademark is and what protections it provides by learning the rules, regulations, customs, and practices for dealing with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) when filing and prosecuting trademark applications. Students will prepare several trademark applications as well as their corresponding Office Action Responses. The course format is 2-4 hours per week of traditional lecture and discussion to cover theory and general principles plus regularly scheduled clinicals with a practicing trademark attorney. During the clinical, the practicing trademark attorney will discuss and provide feedback on the trademark applications and responses prepared for the course.

The classes will run from 6:00PM - 8:00PM on Monday and Wednesday evenings within a virtual classroom.
