Hello,
 
Can anyone recommend any good books to learn patent law? Or any law college websites that has good notes and slide shows..
 
I'm trying to prepare to work at the uspto.

The pace of the training academy is as slow as molasses. There is plenty of time to learn everything and then some.

I have a bit more complete version of how it went down, though mine is still just based on the g****vine (incident was not in my lab)...  Apparently the guy was pissed that his SPE put all three of his cases in to be counted when he only wanted two counted (he wanted to save one I guess? Huh)...  Anyway, he was angry and during his fit he punched a ceiling tile.  Another guy from his lab told him to chill, and he slapped the guy.  A girl from his lab laughed at his immature silliness and he slapped her too.  Apparently he had slapped her before, as well, and the lab had covered for him.  The guy was clearly unhinged and had some issues... we're not by any means under pressure yet!
 
But yeah, if you're wondering what you can get fired for during the training academy, add that to the list!  He was gone the same day!

That's whole PTA slapping stuff is the craziest thing I've ever heard.  Kinda speaks volumes about what happens when you have to hire a thousand people a year....

Its sad that people resort to violence when they don't get their way. I'm surprised this guy was hired, I'm thinking he may have a criminal record or something.
 
What happened to the people that got slapped?

Sorry if this has been asked before but do you need to have already passed the patent bar to apply for the PE training in the academy?  Thanks.
