Webinar: Understanding Patent Basics: Law Librarians Bringing Added Value June 28, 2017, 2pm ET
As a law librarian you serve a wide array of lawyers so you may not have a background specific to patent law. Many law librarians feel they could be more productive if they could better communicate in patent attorney "speak" and may feel awkward in asking for definitions of basic patent terminology.
As part of our efforts to offer on-going support to law librarians, LexisNexis IP Solutions is offering a crash course in basic patent concepts to help you better communicate with your colleagues.
Join us for this informative webinar which will demystify patent terminology and review basic concepts. The presenters will discuss:
Common terms in patent law, such as "What is a provisional patent application?"
What patents lawyers are looking for in terms of help from their law librarians relevant to common concepts.
Why research related to each of these terms, or concepts, are important in the area of patent prosecution.
Q&A to answer those questions you have been meaning to ask.
Sign up today! We will provide slides from the webinar to all registrants.
The presenters are Amantha Allen, User Experience and Professional Development Manager, LexisNexis® IP Solutions and Megan McLoughlin, Product Director, LexisNexis PatentAdvisor®
