2022 PTAB Bar Association Annual Conference

March 23-25, 2022 | Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C.

The 2022 PTAB Bar Association Annual Conference took  place in person on March 23-25, 2022, at the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C.  and on the virtual platform for those that preferred not to travel.

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 highlighted practice tips from the PTAB APJs as well as an afternoon with PTAB APJs  providing their 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.
