Program:  As we await the Supreme Court decision that will determine if patents will still be afforded the presumption of validity, come watch a mock argument on the case to learn the issues that the Supreme Court will be considering and how the decision will affect patent law going forward including prosecution, reexaminations, licensing and litigation. The Microsoft Corp v. i4i case questions whether clear and convincing evidence will still be needed to prove invalidity of a patent, or whether the standard will change to the presumption of the evidence standard used for infringement.  

This lively mock argument between Julie Turner and Karen Boyd, the partners at TurnerBoyd, before a panel of 3 mock judges followed by a discussion of the issues will provide an in depth look at the issues. Our mock judges panel includes Gina Steele, Laura Lee Norris and Jerry Selinger. 

Gina Steele and Julie Turner are both members of the Women's Intellectual Property Lawyers Association (WIPLA).
