 Want to know what patent law is, and what it is like to work as a patent lawyer? In collaboration with Clark & Elbing, LLP, a Boston-based intellectual property law firm that focuses its practice on biotechnology, medicine and chemistry, the GSAS Harvard Biotech Club & the DMS Law PATH will be organizing an 8-week PATHs Patent Law Course for students and postdocs with life science backgrounds. The course will be held at 4:30-6:30 pm every Thursday evening, starting from March 13th. 

The Patent Law Info-course features a combination of lecture and workshop styles. The lecture sessions will introduce students to the patent system and patents in general. It will expose students to important elements of patent law through court cases discussion and to the teaching style common among U.S. law schools. The following workshop sessions will give students an idea what real life in a patent law firm is like, where students will be taught to perform individual tasks frequently encountered by Patent Agents/Attorneys, such as drafting a patent application, and conducting a Freedom to Operate Search.  The course will be conducted by professionals from Clark & Elbing, LLP. 

Pizza will be provided at the course. If you have any questions, please email
