Patent Law

The course surveys the following aspects of patent law: the requirements for obtaining a patent, the rights obtained by the grant of a patent, procedure in securing a patent, licensing of a patent and a brief introduction to international aspects of patent protection. The course deals mainly with issues of substantive law and is not a preparation for the Patent Bar exam, which is more procedural in focus. The course aims to provide a basic framework on which to build for those who have no previous knowledge of patents and to assist in putting knowledge acquired on the job by those working in the patent profession into its proper context.
