Winter 2013 Class Descriptions

As of 6/25/2018 5:56:33 AM

Patent Litigation

This practice/simulation course, revised for the Winter Term of 2013 to

reduce overlap with Patent Law I and II, is designed for students who

intend to become patent practitioners. Students will (1) study and critique

the pleadings and court orders of an actual patent infringement lawsuit,

(2) conduct role-playing exercises concerning patent claim construction

issues, (3) draft claim construction/summary judgment motions and write

client opinion letters on a patent that has not been litigated, and (4)

explore aspects of client relations, professional responsibility and alternate

dispute resolution processes. Substantial written feedback on the writing

assignments will be provided.

In lieu of a final exam, the course grade will be based upon these writing

assignments and class participation.

The integrated approach of this course will be useful even for those patent

practitioners who do not themselves become litigators.
