[ Litigation ] as a Foundational Course : Patent litigation has a number of unique attributes. Students considering a patent, IT or lifesciences litigation practice should take this course to gain hands-on experience in the strategy and pretrial preparation of a patent lawsuit.
General course Description:
This practicum in patent litigation offers students the opportunity to gain experience in oral and written advocacy, while becoming familiar with the most prevalent real world issues in such cases. It does so by simulating a patent action from complaint filing to appeal. Students take turns presenting mock oral arguments, which are held each class. This course complements the other Science, Technology and Intellectual Property offerings by allowing students to apply their understanding of legal theory to the problems that arise when technology companies face-off in the courtroom. Hot issues in patent law are explored as litigation skills are developed. While not a prerequisite, completion of Introduction to Intellectual Property or Intellectual Property: Patents is preferred.
Course Style: An Experiential course is one in which students undertake tasks derived from or akin to those done by practicing lawyers.
