The Chisum Patent Academy’s next New York City seminar will be held on February 20 – 22, 2013.


American Elm conference room (Suite 503), Helmsley Park Lane Hotel, 36 Central Park South, New York, NY 10019.


The Chisum Patent Academy will hold its next Advanced Patent Law Seminars in New York City (February 2013) and Seattle (July/August 2013).

Each three-day seminar is limited to ten (10) attendees. Our seminars are conducted in interactive, round-table style to maximize opportunities for discussion and questioning. All sessions are co-taught by Donald Chisum and Janice Mueller.

Seminar Coverage:

The NYC 2013 seminar will focus in great depth on two timely and controversial patent law topics: patent claim interpretation and active inducement (particularly in the context of multi-actor method claims). We will also cover America Invents Act developments including the USPTO’s final rules on first inventor to file (taking effect three weeks after our seminar); preliminary injunctions and design patents; and inequitable conduct decisions post-Therasense.

Topics include:

  • Claims as the “Name of the Game”: Lessons on Patent Claim Drafting and Interpretation from Recent Federal Circuit Cases.
  • Active Inducement, Method and System Claims, and Joint Infringement.
  • America Invents Act’s “First Inventor to File” Principle on the Eve of Its Effective Date (March 16, 2013).
  • Preliminary Injunctions and Design Patents: Apple v. Samsung.
  • Inequitable Conduct: Decisions Since Therasense.

The Chisum Patent Academy will apply for 18 hours of CLE accreditation per seminar in those states where we conduct seminars. Where state bars require, we submit attendees’ names as they are listed on the sign-in sheet. If you are seeking CLE credit for a state other than where that seminar is being held, please apply directly to the appropriate state bar.

Registration Fee:

$2,750 per attendee.
