2018 Supreme Court IP Review (SCIPR) — Patent Edition
Start Date: 9/21/2018Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Date: 9/21/2018End Time: 5:15 PM

Event Description:
The Program in Intellectual Property Law, the Center for Empirical Studies of Intellectual Property, and the Institute on the Supreme Court of the United States at Chicago-Kent College of Law invite you to attend the Supreme Court IP Review (SCIPR) — Patent Edition. Now in its ninth year, SCIPR is the only annual conference in the country focused exclusively on intellectual property cases before the Supreme Court.

This year's SCIPR address, "Huge Numbers of Patent Cases: How One District Judge Manages Them," will be delivered by the Honorable William Alsup of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. Judge Alsup has one of the most active dockets with respect to patent cases in the country.

Other speakers include top Supreme Court advocates from the parties and leading IP academics.

The morning sessions will include panels on patent cases and Supreme Court analytics, plus a preview of the upcoming Term with a discussion of petitions granted and petitions to watch.

This year, the afternoon sessions will focus on the changing practice and procedure at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) in light of Supreme Court decisions and the PTO's proposed changes. The special feature on the PTAB was organized with the help of PTAB Bar Association members.

Register before Friday, September 7, to take advantage of early-bird registration discounts.
