The Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law will host its first Patent Law Summer Intensive for students and practitioners on July 15-19, 2013. The week-long program will have two components -- participants may enroll in one or both components. The morning component will be an intensive 15-hour course called Introduction to Patent Law which will focus on the law of patent validity and infringement in the United States. The afternoon component, also 15 hours, will feature lectures, panels, and exercises on current topics in patent law and practice. The afternoon course will be keyed to, but independent from, the morning course.
The Patent Law Summer Intensive will be co-taught by Professor Michael Burstein and Professor Daniel Ravicher. The registration fee for the course is $3,000 ($1,800 for morning or afternoon only), excluding a $75 application fee (note: discounted prices for students currently enrolled in J.D. or LL.M. programs). Those interested in registering for the course can do so here (note: the application deadline is May 15, 2013). Additional information regarding the Patent Law Summer Intensive, including a list of the topics being covered in the course, can be obtained here or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
