With 2013 on the horizon, it is time to look forward to a fresh crop of CLE programs directed to the new post grant proceedings of the Patent Trial & Appeal Board (PTAB).
Starting off in January is the 8th Annual Patent Law Institute at the USPTO Alexandria campus. The yearly program, a joint effort of the USPTO, George Mason School of Law, and the University of Texas, is always a huge draw due to the significant participation of USPTO personnel.
Looking forward into the early months of 2013, the Practicing Law Institute’s USPTO Post Grant Trials- 2013is now in it’s 4th year. I will be chairing the program once again, together with Rob Sterne of Sterne Kessler Goldstein and Fox. This year’s program will coincide with the release of the new treatise entitled Post Grant Proceedings Before the Patent Trial & Appeal Board. This years stops include:
- Mar. 4, 2013 Chicago, IL
- Mar. 27, 2013 New York, NY
- Apr. 15, 2013 San Francisco, CA
- Apr. 29, 2013 Austin, TX
See you there.
