The Duke Law Center for Judicial Studies in association with the American Intellectual Property Law Association is holding a one-week intensive training program, which will address important developments in patent law. Designed for practicing lawyers and leaders whose work requires a deep understanding of the fast-moving area of patent law, this program focuses on practical strategies for navigating the new procedures set out in the America Invents Act. Participants also will develop a comprehensive understanding of the case law that is shaping patent and intellectual property litigation. The faculty includes Duke Law scholars, legislative and executive branch officials, experienced lawyers, and prominent United States judges -- a unique combination of knowledge, insight, and experience that distinguishes this accelerated learning program from traditional educational programs.
