Thomas Jefferson School of Law professor Randy Berholtz and a research team of intellectual property fellows will host a symposium for patent attorneys and students from 7:30 a.m.-7 p.m. on Friday, April 11 at TJSL.
Patent examiners, international attorneys and representatives from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies will discuss a framework for biotechnology companies to develop an international patent filing strategy.
"The goal of the symposium is to provide a learning opportunity and a venue for attorneys and students to network on a global scale," Berholtz said.
The all-day event is expected to draw attorneys from all around the globe, including India, South Africa, Europe, Brazil, Australia and China, as well as representatives from the European Patent Office and the State Intellectual Property Office in China.
Participants will be presenting survey results and hosting a series of panel discussions with international patent attorneys regarding the strategies currently used, the major international patent filing systems, and the concept of a world patent.
The event is free for TJSL faculty, staff, alumni, students and non-TJSL students. Guests are $15, San Diego County Bar Association members (seeking MCLE credit) are $50 and non-TJSL California attorneys (seeking MCLE credit) are $75. Refreshments and beverages will be provided.
California attorneys in attendance can elect to receive up to 7.5 hours of CLE credit.
