Intellectual Property or Patent Law Seminar


This is an advanced patent seminar course that uses a simulated litigation format to develop further the basic concepts introduced in the survey IP class. The goal is to provide students with “real world” patent litigation experience and precedent. Students are divided into plaintiffs and defendants and will participate in various aspects of an actual patent dispute including discovery, claim construction (Markman) and summary judgment. Through this process both practical and substantive aspects of patent litigation practice are covered.

Prerequisite: Intellectual Property or Patent Law Seminar except with permission from instructor or Director of Intellectual Property Program: Prof. Ho
