Our patent litigation course provides an opportunity for students to gain practical experience in all phases of a case. Starting with a motion to dismiss and with arguments from all principal phases of a patent litigation including a Federal Circuit appeal, students will argue important and often cutting-edge issues that make patent litigation one of the most compelling areas of contemporary civil litigation. This course is designed to help students tune their oral and written advocacy skills while gaining experience with the kinds of real-world issues that will be confronted in practice.

Although total enrollment is limited, students unable to enroll are encouraged to come to the first day of class, because many students adjust their schedules and room usually opens up for all.

Some background in patent law and US civil procedure will be helpful, though the course is designed to be largely self-contained.

This course satisfies the Skills Requirement.
