London Masterclass: The Real, Dramatic and Ongoing Changes to United States Patent Law and their Impact on the Practice of Patent Law

By Dennis Crouch

This summer, I will be leading a professional summer course (masterclass) on U.S. Patent Law at the University College of London (UCL) Faculty of Laws. The event is sponsored by UCL and chaired by the Rt Hon Prof. Sir Robin Jacob. In three two-hour sessions, we will look at recent changes to the US patent law and their impact on the practice of law – with a particular focus on issues involving UK and European patent law professionals and their clients.

The three sessions are as follows:

  • Monday 18 June – 6-8pm: Changes in the Way Patents are Prosecuted in the US.
  • Thursday 28 June – 6-8pm: US Patent Litigation Structure and Changes to the Process.
  • Wednesday 4 July – 6-8pm: Litigating at the USPTO (Pre and Post-Grant); Subject Matter Eligibility.

The course is geared toward patent law professionals, experienced users of the patent system, and others considering entering the field. I am looking forward to meeting you there and perhaps the pub after.

UCL is offering an early-bird special for those who sign-up early:
