For attorneys seeking post grant patent CLE in 2014, there are a number of high quality programs scheduled between January and April 2014.

First up is the 9th Annual Advanced Patent Law Institute held at the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) on January 23-24th. This two day program offers several post grant patent discussions, including:  AIA Practice Tips Before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board; Post-Grant Proceedings, Strategies and Practice; and Ex Parte Reexam in View of Fresenius – A Hail Mary Pass Which Should Be in Every Playbook.

In February, the International Intellectual Property Institute (IIPI) will conduct a two day seminar in Arlington, VA entitled AIA Post-Grant Practice Conference. This two day program is directed entirely to post grant practice, the second day including mock hearings an oral arguments.

Last, but certainly not least, is the return of the highly acclaimed Practicing Law Institute program entitled USPTO Post-Grant Patent Trials 2014. This program, dedicated entirely to post grant practice will be held on March 27, 2014 in New York, and again on April 28, 2014 in San Francisco. A live webcast is available for the San Francisco location.

I hope to see you at one of these upcoming events.
