Continuing Professional Education - Geosciences

Intellectual Property is an integral part of modern geoscience. While most geoscientists can imagine a patent or copyright on geoscience software, professionals and companies need to understand the intellectual property potential of new exploratory techniques. We provide public and private continuing professional education in the application of intellectual property law to the Geosciences. Email us for more information, or to be placed on the upcoming event reminder list. Also, see our general Business Education Program for broader application of intellectual property to you business.
