The Advanced Patent Law Institute (APLI) offers a results-oriented, in-depth look at the latest developments in patent law and practice. Co-organized by the UC Berkeley School of Law and Stanford Law School, it presents a roster of judges, academics, litigators, patent prosecutors and senior IP counsel from major corporations.
The 2018 APLI features keynotes by Undersecretary Andrei Iancu, head of the US Patent and Trademark Office, and by Makan Delrahim, Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Antitrust Division. Panels will cover the full range of patent law issues, including the impact of recent Supreme Court decisions, still evolving interpretations of patentable subject matter, damages, venue, claim construction, PTAB strategy and much more.
The two-day institute provides 14 hours of CLE credit, including one hour of ethics credit and one hour of elimination of bias credit.
Partner Mark Flanagan will speak on a §101 Update panel—a topic of perennial interest—which will consider recent developments in patent subject matter eligibility from both prosecution and litigation perspectives.
