The Honorable Diane P. Wood, a circuit judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, will deliver the keynote address at IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law's fourth annual U.S. Supreme Court Intellectual Property Review (SCIPR) on September 26. The one-day conference will be held at the law school, 565 West Adams Street (between Clinton and Jefferson streets), in Chicago. Judge Wood will address the topic "Is It Time to Abolish the Federal Circuit's Exclusive Jurisdiction in Patent Cases?"
IIT Chicago-Kent's U.S. Supreme Court IP Review is the only conference in the country focused exclusively on intellectual property cases before the Supreme Court. The annual program draws leading members of the U.S. Supreme Court bar, intellectual property practice, academia, and the judiciary. Presenters include many of the nation's top intellectual property scholars and Supreme Court litigators.
Participants in this year's conference will review six intellectual property cases decided in the 2012–13 U.S. Supreme Court term and examine cases on the docket for the next session.
General registration for the conference is $35; $15 for non–IIT Chicago-Kent academics and students; and free to IIT Chicago-Kent faculty and students.
