Upcoming Post-Grant CLE

The PatentsPostGrant.com free monthly webinar series will resume in March. For more comprehensive CLE programs, there are a number of marquee programs on the immediate horizon.

First up is this week’s Utah IP Summit  (Friday, February 27th), topics include Surviving PTAB Review & Insulating Your Patent Portfolio

Next, is the The 10th Annual Advanced Patent Law Institute at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s main campus in Alexandria Virginia, March 12-13th. This program provides a comprehensive view of USPTO practice, including application prosecution issues. Multiple segments are specifically directed to PTAB practice, including Lessons learned:Tips and Strategies for Practicing Before the PTAB. Other segments include the participation of several current PTAB judges.

Last, but certainly not least, is the most widely attended post-grant program of the year, Practicing Law Institute’s USPTO Post-Grant Patent Trials 2015. I am happy to return as chair of this program along with Rob Greene Sterne of Stern Kessler Goldstein & Fox. These programs are always the highlights of the CLE year.  (Register here)
