What about the PTO making possible CLE credit for attending the BCP meetings (online or in person)? After all, isn't that what the BCP is all about? If state credit were available for the BCP meetings, I think it really would be a win-win situation, because more people would have more of an incentive for attending these educational meetings--it would facilitate practitioners getting relevant training and satisfying their CLE requirements and also presumably satisfy the goals of the CEP program.

Inquiring Mind:

I like the idea of securing CLE credit for BCP or CEP programs. Patent attorneys are encouraged to send an e-mail to [email protected] or to call Bill Griffin at 571-272-4097 to suggest that the USPTO do just that.
