LAW 544 - Patent Litigation Seminar

Prerequisite(s): Civil Procedure is a prerequisite.

This seminar considers procedural and substantive issues surrounding patent litigation and administrative remedies that are available for patent disputes. Topics will include a broad range of issues relevant to the subject that potentially may discuss jurisdictional matters, pleadings, motions, discovery, jury trial, damage requests and post-trial motions. The exact selection of seminar topics will be identified on the seminar syllabus. Prior successful completion of Intellectual Property Survey or Patent Law is strongly preferred. This seminar is not intended to provide the basic coverage of Patent Law but rather it is intended to build upon the fundamental knowlege of that subject. For two credits, the students, in consultation with the professor, will prepare a footnoted or end noted research paper between 20 and 25 pages in length. For an additional credit, the minimum page requirement is 35 pages.

Students can choose to have this course satisfy the writing requirement or not.
