2024 Conference Registration

2024 PTAB Bar Association Annual Conference

Were you able to join us for the 2024 PTAB Bar Association Annual Conference?  The conference sessions included a full afternoon of sessions led by the PTAB APJs as well as sessions including a dynamic discussion of real-parties-in-interest, DEI issues in the PTAB practice, ethics issues in artificial intelligence, a debate on obviousness with prominent academicians, and a session offering insights from the District Court bench. Attendees were eligible to earn up to 12 CLE credits including diversity and ethics credits. All sessions were live-streamed as a virtual component for those who were under a travel ban or preferred to participate virtually.

We were fortunate to welcome more than 100 judges and officials from the United States Patent & Trademark Office, the United States District Court, and the Court of Federal Claims who engaged with our attendees during the many networking opportunities.

Don't miss our next event, the PTAB Bar Association Thought Leader Summit on October 10, 2024 and the 2025 Annual Conference on March 19-21, 2025 in Washington, DC.
