2022 Conference Registration

Registration is closed  

The 2022 PTAB Bar Association Annual Conference registration is closed.  We had 435 attendees participate in-person and virtually!

The conference brought together practitioners, in-house counsel, and members of the bench for a dynamic discussion of Patent Trial Appeal Board (PTAB) best practices, recent developments and trends, policy considerations, and much more!

APJ Day was a huge success. The day included a series of new sessions on Wednesday that highlight practice tips from the PTAB APJs and  an afternoon with PTAB APJs providing insights from the bench. 

Other conference topics included challenges facing the PTAB in 2022, PTAB appellate strategies, reexamination strategies, diversity, equity and inclusion, and ethics.
