Our course provides an opportunity for students to gain practical experience in all phases of a federal court litigation. Starting with early procedural motions and continuing with arguments from all principal phases of a federal court litigation, 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. Students will be required to write a series of papers.
Although total enrollment is limited, students on the waitlist are encouraged to come to the first day of class, because many students adjust their schedules and room usually opens up.
Attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) may be dropped without notice. The instructor can continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to risk being dropped without notice.
This class may be counted as either an Option 1 class (two Option 1 classes satisfy the J.D. writing requirement) or units from this class may count toward the J.D. Experiential Requirement. This class may count for both requirements if and only if a student is electing Option 1 and the student's other Option 1 class being used to satisfy the J.D. writing requirement is not being counted towards any other requirement.
