“The strength of a patent depends on a properly prepared patent specification that meets the requirements prescribed in the Industrial Property Act 2001 and the industrial Property Regulations 2002. In addition, there are generally accepted practices that have developed over the many years of patent practice, which serve to guide preparation and prosecution of patent applications.”
There will be a training course, Patent Drafting and Prosecution, to be held on 18th – 21st August 2014 at Strathmore University. For learned friends who attend and complete this course, they will receive 2 CLE points. The course prospectus is available here and the course programme is available here.
For those who attended this course in 2013 (see here), and wish to further refine your patent drafting skills, please note that the 2014 version of the course will focus heavily on patent drafting for ICT-based inventions. The trainers of this year’s training course will also work with repeat attendees to customize your training.
The fee per participant is Ksh 50,000 which is inclusive of course materials, lunches and teas. Participants who register and pay the fee early will enjoy a special rate of Ksh. 45,000.
