The event will feature a discussion of patent venue issues facing litigators, litigation strategies in the wake of TC Heartland, subsequent District Court decisions interpreting that decision and a discussion of some unanswered questions in the wake of TC Heartland.

Reception (Cash Bar) 6:00 – 7:00 PM
MCLE Presentation/Buffet Dinner 7:00 – 8:00 PM
Small Firm/Solo Practitioners Fall Program 6:30 – 8:00 PM

As cyberthreats and cybersecurity issues are leading the news, and bar associations across the nation opine on the duties of attorneys to avoid such threats, the LAIPLA, will be giving a presentation on the business and ethical issues presented by the cybersecurity threat to the small firm or solo practitioner, with an emphasis on the practical impacts and requirements on the solo practitioner or small firm.

Neil Pedersen, who heads his own small firm, teaches a law school course in Law Practice Management, and has widely spoken on this issue and the development of the 21st century law office will present.

 

Young Lawyers Fall Program 5:15 – 6:00 PM

Are you a young lawyer practicing intellectual property law and wondering how to advance and succeed in your career? You should join the Young Lawyers for their first program of the year, “Tips for Making Yourself an Indispensable Member of a Litigation Team.”
