Center for Intellectual Property Law Hosts ‘Patent Law’s Audience’ Presentation

The John Marshall Law School Center for Intellectual Property Law hosts “Patent Law’s Audience” at noon on Nov. 18, 2011, with keynote speaker Timothy Holbrook.

This lecture will assess who the relevant audiences may be in patent doctrine, whether current doctrines are directed to the appropriate audiences, and what prospective steps could be taken as a result of the potential disconnect between the law and the proper audience.

Holbrook is a professor at Emory University School of Law in Atlanta teaching patent law, international intellectual property, patent litigation, trademark law and policy and property law. He has published widely on patent law issues, his work having appeared in Indiana Law Journal, Harvard Journal of Law & Technology and William and Mary Law Review. He co-authored Patent Litigation and Strategy with United State Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit Judge Kimberly A. Moore and Judge Paul R. Michel, (ret.).

Holbrook has been a professor at Chicago-Kent College of Law and visiting professor at Stanford Law School; University of Denver Sturm College of Law; and Washington University School of Law in St. Louis. His talk is a Distinguished Professor Presentation.

Attorney participants can earn approximately 1.5 CLE credits. Box lunches will be provided.

This program at The John Marshall Law School, 315 S. Plymouth Ct., in Chicago, is free and open to the public. Registrations are required at
