Virtual PTAB Conference Offers Master Class & Boot Camp Programs Tomorrow

Tomorrow, the PTAB Bar Association will hold its annual conference. The conference will bring together practitioners, in-house counsel, and members of the bench for a dynamic discussion of Patent Trial Appeal Board (PTAB) best practices, recent developments and trends, policy considerations, and more. (This year, like all conferences, the program will be offered virtually).

The 3-day conference will cover agency developments, administrative law practices, and a host of PTAB specific strategies, and best practices. The program includes a Boot Camp segment for new practitioners, and a Master Class for more experienced practitioners. Other highlights include panel of administrative patent judges of the PTAB, as well as a segment on CAFC practices, including Chief Judge Prost, Judge Newman and Judge Stoll. (full agenda here)

I am pleased to be moderating the Master Class session on Wednesday, September 23rd. The Master Class is an innovative workshop program exploring complex and strategic decisions in AIA trial proceedings where there may be many “right” answers . . . depending on the facts.  Veteran lawyers will discuss how they approach difficult situations to give their clients an edge, and PTAB judges will offer their insights and perspectives.

I hope to see you (virtually) at one of these great programs (register here)
