Eventbrite - Protecting Little Guys' Big Ideas: The California Inventors Assistance Program

Complimentary 1-Hr. MCLE Program!

Please join Fish & Richardson and California Lawyers for the Arts for a complimentary reception and interactive discussion with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office and Intel Corporation, while earning one hour of CLE on the California Inventors Assistance Program (“CIAP”).

The CIAP was established in October 2012, to assist financially under-resourced independent inventors and small businesses to secure intellectual property protection by partnering with law firm lawyers, in-house counsel, and attorneys with expertise in patent law.

Come learn about the USPTO’s national effort and the implementation of regional pro bono programs in reaching this client population, how your firm or in-house legal department can get involved, and best practices for patent pro bono program management at your firm or legal department.

“The Patent Pro Bono Program showcases American ingenuity at its best - leveraging an immense reserve of legal talent in an arbitrage that brings needed skills to those who can’t otherwise access them, to serve inventors, innovation and economic growth.”
-David J. Kappos, former director, USPTO.
