• Generic Patent Claims

Intellectual Property Luncheon Series

12 - 1:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 3, 2008
Suffolk University Law School
120 Tremont St., Boston

This forum features discussions on patent claims hat the Federal Circuit may find “too generic” and invalid under the enablement requirement. The event is part of the Intellectual Property Luncheon Series.

Some see a trend at the CAFC disfavoring broad generic patent claims. The forum will analyze several cases in which broad patent claims were struck down by the CAFC since the specification enabled only one of two possible versions of the claimed invention.

Claims broader than the specification may not survive this precedent. Strategies to draft claims and specifications in light of these cases will be discussed.

The forum is free, and lunch is included. Please register in advance to reserve a seat. 

The goal of the luncheon series is to establish a forum where local practitioners, alumni, and current students may come together to informally discuss practice problems and recent developments in the law. The series is intended to ease the transition from law school to practice. Roundtable discussions may provide solutions to practice problems as well as an opportunity to discuss new law and develop practice strategies. The series also will create networking and referral opportunities for local attorneys and alumni. This is a public interest service intended to provide an educational forum for members of the bar.
