Calling all Loyola Patent Fair Attendees!  Join us Wednesday, July 20th from 4:00pm-6:00pm for Practice Before the PTAB – From the PTAB Judges’ Perspective.  This program is a unique opportunity to learn about the practice before the PTAB from the PTAB judges, themselves. 

The PTAB judges will offer an introduction to the PTAB and  an update on the “state of the Board”. The judge will also discuss patent career development as well as the current issues before the Board from the perspective of both judges and practitioners.  The program will end with a game of “PTAB Feud”, followed by a Networking Reception from 6:00pm-7:00pm. This is a  fantastic way to learn about the PTAB, interact with the PTAB judges and have a little fun with members of the PTAB Bar Association before your interviews begin!

This event is free of charge but all attendees must register.
