The National Patent Drafting Competition (USPTO) introduces law students to issues arising in U.S. patent law and develops their patent application drafting, amending, and prosecution skills. Student teams will be given hypothetical invention statements for which they will search the prior art, prepare a specification, draft claims, and present their reasoning for patentability before a panel of judges comprised of patent examiners, practitioners, and high-profile guest judges.
Participation is worth two (2) credits.
