Ex Parte Appeal Roadshows coming to a city near you

Are you a Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) practitioner? Would you like to learn more about ex parte appeal proceedings? We have the event for you!

We're hitting the road with a new in-person training opportunity focused on ex parte appeals best practices and taught exclusively by PTAB judges. These educational sessions begin in Los Angeles on Thursday, December 7 and continue through May 2024 in cities nationwide. 

View the full schedule and detailed program agenda and register today on the Ex Parte Appeal Roadshows webpage.

Attendees will:

  • Learn tips for more efficiently filing an appeal brief, making more persuasive written arguments, and presenting an effective oral argument before a judge panel.
  • Hear perspectives from PTAB judge speakers, including Acting Deputy Chief Judge Kal Deshpande, Vice Chief Judge Janet Gongola, Lead Judges Georgianna Witt Braden and Dave McKone, and Judges Debra Dennett and Rachel Townsend. 
  • Get the opportunity to engage individually with PTAB judges and network with other PTAB practitioners.

The roadshows are free, and registration is encouraged. CLE credit is pending per state where the events are being held.
