Course Name: Patent Drafting for Beginners

Course abstract

Patent specifications—the documents with encompass the patent right in a technological invention—are techno-legal documents created at the interface of science and law. Unlike technical writing, patent law requires drafting patent specifications to satisfy certain requirements. The course is designed to enable beginners without any prior knowledge on patent drafting to draft patent specifications on their own. The course will cover the fundamental principles of patent drafting and discuss in detail the concepts in patent law in the context of patent drafting. Students who take this course should be able to: a) Understand the fundamental concepts in patent law in the context of patent drafting, and b) Draft patent specifications either for their own inventions or for other inventors.
