On Friday, April 11, 2014, Professor Randy Berholtz and a Research Team of IP Fellows will host a symposium for patent attorneys and students to hear from patent examiners in key jurisdictions, international attorneys and representatives from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
“I would like to encourage you all to come to our Thomas Jefferson School of Law Conference on the Topic of Where to File: A Framework for Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Companies to Develop an International Patent Filing Strategy that will be held at the law school on Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.,” said Professor Berholtz.
The goal of the symposium is to provide a learning opportunity and a venue for attorneys and students to network on a global scale. The all-day event will draw attorneys from all around the globe including India, South Africa, Europe, Brazil, Australia and China, as well as representatives from the European Patent Office and the State Intellectual Property Office (China).
The Team will be presenting the survey results, and hosting a series of panel discussions with international patent attorneys regarding the strategies currently used, the major international patent filing systems, and the concept of a World Patent. This event will be open to students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members interested in the topic. California attorneys in attendance can elect to receive up to 7.5 hours of CLE credit.
The event will be held in room 323 and is free for TJSL faculty, staff, alumni, students and non-TJSL students. Guests are $15, San Diego County Bar Association Members (seeking MCLE credit) are $50 and non-TJSL California attorneys (seeking MCLE credit) are $75. Refreshments and beverages will be provided and there will also be a few door prizes.
