Description

Intellectual Property is Most Sought After Field

Did you know that in 1991, 85% of corporate assets were in physical form, such as buildings, automobiles, equipment, raw material etc. In 2016, 85% of corporate assets are in intellectual form such as patents, copyrights, trademarks, goodwill, name brand recognition and so on. This means that corporations are spending a lot of money to acquire and protect their patent rights. This in turn means that there is a tremendous demand for professionals with IP background and credentials. Patent Lawyers make an average of $180K USD per year and that number goes up to $280K per year in areas like Silicon Valley, New York and such. 

To become patent agent or attorney, you must pass Patent Bar Exam administered by USPTO. This course is designed to prepare the students for the Patent Bar Exam offered by USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office). Patent Bar Exam is considered to be one of the hardest licensing exams and I can confirm that since I have taken over two dozen such certification and licensing exams over my career. Though it is an open book exam, there are over 6000 pages of material covered in the exam. Furthermore, exam questions are designed to test candidates' understanding of the subject matter and not necessarily their ability to find the subject matter in the exam material available during the exam.

Student quote related to this course:

"Hey Kasey! I'm using the OmniPrep patent bar course, and supplementing it with your course. I must say, I am thankful that I had a solid understanding of the patent fundamentals prior to your course. I'm halfway done at the moment, and each question makes me realize "WOW.. I thought I knew this.. but not in this insane level of detail!" I'm hopeful to pass the exam and would love your guidance to help me along the way. Thank you! The course rocks and I hope to finish this weekend. :D

Hey! I just finished your class and wow.. amazing!! I wish you did more for the Patent Bar!!!!!! I want to do more questions (variations of the ones you taught), and others. I'd love to engage with people so I can pass this test. Thank you!"

Course Substantive Content:

In this course I have drafted 30 modern questions from the following topics:

  1. AIA 102, novelty 
  2. AIA 103. obviousness 
  3. AIA 112, new matter
  4. Appeal process
  5. Reissue of patents
  6. Supplemental examination of patents
  7. Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) 
  8. Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT).

Layout & Approach

The course is laid out in question and answer format. The first lecture introduces you to the entire course and gives you a high level view as to what to expect in the course and how to best prepare and pass this very difficult exam. Each question is presented in a quiz format, which I call "Hot Pencil Drill." Before you answer hot pencil drill question, I have provided you pointers as to MPEP and other related material that you should review it quickly. This will help you hone in your MPEP search skill. 

You will then answer a hot pencil drill question and see whether you got it right or wrong. Next lecture contains the answer in two formats - PDF attachment and video. You should carefully study the answer and watch video at least twice. Use the bookmark feature available on Udemy's platform to help you review important information at a later time.

Go through all 30 hot pencil drill questions, answers, videos, and related reference material. Make and update your outline while you go through these material. 

Video Answers

Video answers are given in two formats - Screen cast video and talking head recap videos. 

Screen cast videos walks you through each question, call of the question, answer choices, key issue(s), right answer reasoning, wrong answer reasoning, and more information. I have used John Madden style NFL game analysis markers to drive home the point of each question. In actual exam, you should be using highlighting feature, now available in actual patent bar exam at Prometric testing centers. 

Talking head videos recaps the key issue and substantive patent law reasoning for each question to ensure that you fully understand why the right answer is right and related patent law and patent prosecution processes involved at USPTO.

Mentoring

Throughout the course, you are encouraged to participate in one or more of ten methods of communication with me and other fellow candidates, who are also going through their patent bar exam preparation journey.

Who is the target audience?
  • Students who plan to take Patent Bar Exam offered by USPTO
  • Future patent agents
  • Future patent lawyers
  • Anyone who wants to learn more about USPTO process and practices.
  • Students who want to learn about AIA (America Invents Act)

Attorney at Law & Information Technology Professional

I am an attorney at law admitted to practice law in California. I passed the Bar Exam on my first attempt in 2014. I was recipient of the best brief award in the legal writing course during my law school years. I also passed the Patent Bar Exam, which is a pre-requisite to become a patent agent or a patent attorney.

I have a formula that I want to share with the future bar and patent bar exam candidates, which will help them prepare & pass these very difficult licensing exams. I have taken 25 or so such licensing and certification exams over my career and I know what it takes to pass such difficult exam. Bar Exam and Patent Bar Exam are two of the most difficult exams out there. I am extremely passionate about teaching the law, mentoring my students, and providing my extensive support to my students. Pass the Bar and/or the Patent Bar Exam and add highly anticipated word “Esq.' or Patent Agent, or Patent Attorney at the end of your name! 

As my second persona, I am a technology professional with 20+ years of experience working in various capacities in information technology space in Silicon Valley. I have worked for reputable companies as well as founded and operated my own business for several years.

I hold Master of Science (MS) degree in Computer Engineering from University of Southern California. I also hold Juris Doctor (JD) degree from Concord Law School. In addition; over the last two decades, I have achieved over 20 certifications from various IT companies. I am a staunch believer of life-long learning and mentoring. I enjoy learning new topics and share my knowledge. 

Teaching at Udemy is like coming to a full circle for me. In 1998, I founded an IT training company called Hello Computers; training students for Cisco, Microsoft, Check Point, Sun, Oracle, and ISC2 technologies. I trained thousands of students over several years. I authored four books for four different CCIE certification tracks that were sold to thousands of customers for $495 per book!

In 1999, I was one of the early adopters delivering technology training over the internet. Over the years, I trained thousands of students across the world for CCIE exam using WebEx. We achieved an unimaginable feat in year 2000 when students from UK, New Zealand, Africa, and Japan enrolled in 5 day class for $4K each without ever seeing an instructor. Since then, technology has come a long way. Today, instructors on Udemy are training millions of students across the world!

I am extremely thrilled to be teaching courses on Udemy. I plan on teaching law as well as technology related courses on Udemy platform. I feel that I bring in a unique perspective as a technology savvy lawyer and I want to share my knowledge, experience, and passion with my students. 

I look forward to collaborating with each and everyone of you. There is a statistics out there that one who engages in conversation about learning subjects is twice more likely to succeed. I promise to respond to every single message in all formats including q&a forum, tweet, Facebook post, discussion topic, email, text and so on. I am grateful for your enrollment in my class and I look forward to working with you closely!

Thank you and see you in my class!
