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.
