Details

The USPTO is partnering with The University of San Diego School of Law to present live PTAB (Patent Trial and Appeal Board) and TTAB (Trademark Trial and Appeal Board) proceedings actually pending before the PTAB and TTAB, including ex parte appeal hearings and AIA trials, and to provide educational sessions where Board judges share tips for successful advocacy before the TTAB and PTAB.

This program is best for patent and trademark attorneys and parties who appear in front of the PTAB or TTAB, as well as those who want to learn about practice before these administrative tribunals.

The USPTO sessions will be held in the USD School of Law Grace Courtroom. All sessions are free and open to the public. Lunch is free for students and and will be served in the courtroom. All non-students (other than USPTO personnel) can purchase a buffet-style lunch (drink included) in the campus restaurant, La Gran Terraza, located across from the law school for $25. The event will be followed by a reception at O'Toole's, also located across from the law school. The reception is free for students and USPTO personnel, and is $45 for non-students, and includes two drink tickets plus a wide selection of hors d'oeuvres.

Space is very limited, and early registration is recommended. You may select morning session, afternoon session, or both. Once you have registered for the event, directions and parking information will be provided in your confirmation email.

Agenda

 

 

Patent Trial and Appeal Board

The Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) conducts trials, including inter partes, post-grant, and covered business method patent reviews and derivation proceedings; hears appeals from adverse examiner decisions in patent applications and reexamination proceedings; and renders decisions in interferences.

Center for Intellectual Property Law and Markets

The Center for Intellectual Property Law and Markets trains students in the fundamentals of intellectual property (IP) laws and in the ways clients use IP rights to compete in real-world markets.

USD's focus on the role of IP rights in markets distinguishes it from other, more traditional IP centers. It also provides a forum where lawyers, clients, judges and policymakers can share ideas about IP doctrines and policies. The center's policy workshops also provide opportunities for students and community members to engage in discussions about current IP policy issues, focusing on the intersection between economic analysis and IP policy.
