LAW-2978 Patent Law:Post Grant Practice

Mr. Cory Bell,

2 credits day; 2 credits evening.

This course will cover the procedures and skills needed to challenge patent validity at the U.S. Patent and Trademark office, including Post-Grant Review and Inter Partes Review. The course will track the entire process: beginning with advising clients on the strategic advantages of each type of proceeding and ending with oral arguments before a mock Patent Trials and Appeal Board. Each class will contain a short lecture and time for groups to work on class assignments. The grading will be based on a combination of participation, assignment grades, and teammate evaluations.
