“I learnt some of the best practices in the field”
I have obtained massive valuable information during the course. The emphasis on group discussion and the mentoring by an experienced trainer provided the opportunity to exchange views between group members and trainer. From the informal discussion in relation to IP, and from the trainers who generously shared several drafting techniques, I learnt some of the best practices in this field.

“Allowed me to communicate strategically with prospective licensees”
I work as a Licensing Officer in the Technology
Transfer Office of the University of Hong Kong. Some of my responsibilities include evaluating patent filing requests from our researchers and negotiating patent license deals with our potential licensees. With no prior formal training in patent drafting, I found the course very useful in allowing me to learn and understand the intricacies of patent drafting. This helps me a great deal in understanding the related patents as I perform the prior art search when evaluating a patent filing request. In addition, with the skills learnt from SEAD, it also allows me to communicate strategically with a prospective licensee in a patent license negotiation.

“One of the best patent drafting courses available in the Southeast Asian region”
In a country like India, the patent system is still evolving and there lies a huge demand for the skilled patent draftsperson to cross the technological spectrum. In spite of this demand, there is no good institution here that can offer quality teaching and knowledge sharing on the subject. This course taught me the basics as well as the
complexities of patent claim and specification drafting in great detail. The different modules of this course were well thought out and designed to allow students to understand various learning stages in an easy manner. Moreover, the SEAD course has some of the best patent professionals across the globe on its panel, who go out of their way to make students like us understand various concepts without much difficulty. Without any doubt and reservations, I must say that the SEAD course is one of the best patent drafting courses available in the Southeast Asian region, and it should definitely be attended by those professionals who wish to enhance their drafting skills.

“A solid background on the art of patent drafting”
This course offered me an excellent opportunity to work together with tutors having very strong experience in both patent prosecution and teaching. It gave me a solid background on the art of patent drafting, provided me with a unique opportunity to examine the same invention under a European, US or Japanese perspective and helped me enormously to improve my patent drafting skills.
