Title: Taking a patent drafting workshop?
Post by ks1969 on Jun 15th, 2007, 2:44pm
 I have just been registered as a patent attorney.  I don't have any IP experience but some experience as a lawyer.  (estate planning, contracts etc)  Also my technical background is working as a pharmacist.  

I have purchased Landis on claim drafting and I'm beginning to read that.  (read about getting that on this site)

What I was wondering, if anyone has had a good or bad experience on any of the Patent drafting workshops.  PRG and AILPA both have ones in the summer and wondering if worthwhile.

I'm wondering if taking these would help me or make me more marketable.  I've been talking and sending out resumes to firms and starting to see rejections.  They are pretty much consistant in their responses, that they really don't want to train and pay such a high salary.

Thanks for any responses

AIPLA workshop greatly helped me for my claiming drafting.  Now I can draft a patent application (100 pages or around) in 3 or 4 days.  

But what I learned most was through reading and dissecting many of issued patents.  

I am reading a lot of patent case laws so that I can get some insight to draft a patent application as if it will be litigated down the road.

Thank you, I'm assuming you took the workshop for patent attorneys 0-3 years in practice?
