Even as it deals with contentious issues such as affirmative action and campaign financing, the U.S. Supreme Court has an increasing interest in patent law. Over the span of only three months, from February to April 2014, the court heard oral arguments for five patent cases that will have a significant impact on the patent law community. By comparison, the Supreme Court granted writs of certiorari in five patent cases over the first 15-year period after the Federal Circuit’s creation, most of which raised only procedural issues.Now, more than ever, successful and effective patent practice requires close observance of the high court's activity. This program will provide an overview of each patent case decided, or that will be decided, in 2014 as well as a brief analysis of the potential impact on the patent community.Educational Objectives:To educate the IP attorney as to the Patent and IP-related issues the U.S. Supreme Court is concerned with.Who would benefit most from attending this program?Intellectual property attorneys.Program Level: Basic-IntermediatePrerequisite: A general understanding of intellectual property and litigation.CPE Delivery Method: Group Internet-Based LiveField of Study: Specialized Knowledge and ApplicationsRecommended CPE Credit: 1.0 creditsAnticipated CLE Credit: 1.0 credits (may vary based on from which jurisdiction requested)For additional information, please see the “CE Credit” tab.
