The Supreme Court, the Federal Circuit, and the Patent and Trademark Office are reshaping patent law, and this program will teach you everything you need to know about the basics of patent litigation in this evolving landscape. An expert faculty, including Mayer Brown’s own Colleen Tracy James and Gary Hnath, will cover the patent litigation process from start to finish, including actions brought in District Court and at the U.S. International Trade Commission. From the Rule 11 pre-filing investigation through the appeal in the Federal Circuit, you will learn essential practical details, such as how to prepare complaints and answers in a patent case, where to file a lawsuit, and how to prepare an effective defense, as well as the nuts and bolts of patent-related discovery. The program will also explore the claim construction process leading up to the Markman hearing, including the Supreme Court’s and Federal Circuit’s evolving law of how patents should be interpreted.
