  • The US Patent and Trademark Office has an amazingly effective patent process overview page that provides a description of everything you need to know to get a lay of the land, with links to different specifics that can help you do a deep dive.
  • The American Intellectual Law Association has a description on US IP law
  • The WIPO has a lot of information on patent law that is not US centric
