June CLE: June 23, 2022 

(Hybrid, Noon)

“Patents and the Gender Gap: Inventors, Patent Prosecution, and Patent Litigation"  Speaker:   Kirby Drake, Kirby Drake Law PLLC

The presentation will focus on the 2019 “Progress and Potential: A Profile of women inventors on U.S. patents” published by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) as well as the 2020 update on women inventor-patentees.  The presentation will then look at the gender gap and patent law, both in terms of practicing before the USPTO as well as attorneys involved in patent litigation.  The presentation will also highlight efforts being made to close the gender gap when it comes to patents and what else may be done.
