Participation in the USPTO Patent Pro Bono Program Practitioners may earn up to two CLE credits in patent law and practice by participating in the USPTO Patent Pro Bono Program. Practitioners may earn one credit hour of CLE in patent law and practice for every three hours of service provided to a client through the USPTO Patent Pro Bono Program. 2. Participation in the USPTO Law School Clinic Practitioners may earn up to two CLE credits in patent law and practice by taking part in a law school clinic that participates in the USPTO Law School Clinic Certification Program. Practitioners may earn one credit hour of CLE for every three hours of service in such a clinic. 3. Presenting or Preparing for a Course Approved for USPTO CLE Credit Practitioners may earn up to two CLE credits in patent law and practice or up to one credit in ethics for either speaking at a USPTO-accredited CLE course or preparing written materials for such a CLE course (but not both). Credit for preparation will be awarded on the basis of time spent by a practitioner either (1) preparing written materials for use in the presentation of the course; or (2) preparing a presentation as an instructor or presenter for the course. The number of preparation minutes shall not exceed four times the number of instructional minutes in the presentation being prepared. 4. Writing Practitioners may earn up to two CLE credits in patent law and practice or up to one credit in ethics for writing, as an author or co-author, materials published in the form of an article, chapter, or book that contributed substantially to the continuing legal education of the author or co-author and other practitioners, and that was not done as part of the practitioner’s regular employment, as a service to the practitioner’s clients, or as a marketing device for the practitioner or the practitioner’s employer. 5. Teaching at an Accredited Law School Practitioners may earn up to two CLE credits in patent law and practice or up to one credit in ethics for teaching, lecturing, or speaking on (1) legal ethics, or (2) patent law and practice, as defined in part VI(B) of these guidelines, in the position of a part-time faculty member in any law school accredited by the American Bar Association. Practitioners may obtain USPTO ethics CLE credit by attending a CLE course that is offered by the USPTO for ethics CLE credit. Practitioners may also obtain USPTO ethics CLE credit by attending a CLE course that has been approved by any state bar for ethics credit. In general, courses accepted for USPTO ethics CLE credit will pertain to a practitioner’s obligations under the USPTO Rules of Professional Conduct, including a practitioner’s obligations under such rules to clients; prospective clients; and/or the USPTO, courts, and other legal institutions. C. Non-Qualifying Activities No CLE credit can be claimed for the following activities: • Activity done in the ordinary course of practicing in patent matters before the USPTO, the performance of regular employment, or as volunteer service to clients, bar organizations, or the general public (except as noted above). • Activity associated with membership in an organization, including committee meetings, business meetings, or work sessions. II. Activities for Which USPTO CLE Credit May Be Earned A. Attendance at CLE Courses Completed During a Reporting Period Practitioners may earn CLE credit by attending a CLE course in either (1) patent law and practice or (2) ethics. Practitioners may not earn CLE credit for repeating a course or program with identical content, in any format, even if the course or program is repeated in a different biennial registration period. Practitioners may earn CLE credit for completing an updated version of a course or program the practitioner previously completed. 1. CLE Courses in Patent Law and Practice Practitioners may earn patent CLE credit by attending a CLE course on the topic of patent law and practice. In general, courses designated for USPTO patent CLE credit will pertain to any of the topics listed in 37 CFR 11.5(b)(1), which defines practice in patent matters before the USPTO. Applicable topics include, but are not limited to: • Preparation and prosecution of patent applications; • Consulting with or giving advice to a client who is contemplating filing a patent application or other document with the Office, including considering the advisability of relying on alternative forms of protection that may be available; • Drafting a specification of claims of a patent application; • Drafting an amendment or response to an Office communication; • Determining and rendering opinions on patentability; • Drafting documents to be presented in any patent-related proceeding before the USPTO, including proceedings before the PTAB; • Drafting an assignment of rights in an issued patent, patent application, or in contemplation of the filing of a patent application; and • Litigation that pertains to the topics listed in 37 CFR 11.5(b)(1). The USPTO offers numerous opportunities to earn patent CLE credit at no cost. USPTO CLE courses are listed on the USPTO website, which contains a schedule of upcoming courses and links to USPTO CLE courses that are available on demand.

III. Recordkeeping It is recommended that practitioners who certify completion of CLE keep records that substantiate such completion for three previous reporting periods (i.e., six years). Although there is no specific recordkeeping requirement, practitioners should be aware that the USPTO’s OED may request that a practitioner supply documentation that substantiates his or her completion of CLE or ‘‘other activities.’’ Practitioners are reminded that they have ethical obligations to be complete, accurate, and truthful in all of their representations to the USPTO. Consequently, practitioners may be subject to discipline under the USPTO Rules of Professional Conduct if their CLE certifications are false or misleading.
