LegalCORPS will provide regularly scheduled workshops to instruct inventors about how to prepare and file a provisional application for a U.S. patent. Each workshop will include a one-hour presentation about the provisional patent application process. For participants who also have attended an instructional workshop provided by the Hennepin County Libraries, the LegalCORPS workshops also will include a one-on-one 30-minute coaching session with a volunteer patent attorney.
For information about the next such workshop, see the “News & Events” section on the home page of this web site.
Eligible inventors can apply for assistance with non-patent business law matters. (See http://legalcorps.org/small-businesses/eligibility/legal-assistance) Eligible clients also can request assistance with a non-provisional application after they have filed a provisional application.
