In the past, we’ve talked about the patent pro Bono program. This program offers assistance to individuals who have inventions that may be patentable, but can’t afford an attorney. It’s sponsored by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and administered locally. Generally, you must have a low income. You can learn more about that program on the USPTO’s website here. There are several other programs that the USPTO is involved in that are available to those looking for help with intellectual property, but I want to talk about something a little different. You may not be able to afford an attorney, but qualify for pro bono assistance. And that’s where the USPTO’s Law School Clinical Certification Program comes in.
