First Friday Ethics (March 2021)

Session 1: “Trying” Situations for Trial Attorneys: Top Issues and Everyday Practices to Avoid Malpractice (REPLAY)- Explore some of the top issues or common “missteps” that can get small-firm/solo practitioner trial attorneys into trouble, as well as the critical importance of being “selfish” about your own health and fitness avoid malpractice. Session 2: The Evolution of the ABA Model Rules on the Unauthorized Practice of Law: Myth vs. Reality (REPLAY) - Though the ABA Model Rules are intended to serve as a template for states to follow, the Model Rules are neither mandatory nor enforceable.  Model Rules provisions on the unauthorized practice of law have developed in response to social change but the language suggested is rarely followed in its exact form. The disparity between the Model Rules and what states actually require can cause significant confusion leading to the unintentional unauthorized practice of law. This presentation highlights some of those differences to help attorneys avoid jurisdictional traps and gotchas. Session 3: Technology and Ethics: Adapting to the post-COVID Practice of Law (REPLAY) - Explore the incorporation of technology into the practice of law in response to the COVID-19 crisis, and moving forward. Jessica Vittorio will discuss the utilization of various types of technologies, and the correlating ethical rules to be aware of as practitioners begin to engage with these technologies in practice.

2020 Case Law Developments in Patent Litigation

Session 1: Year in Review: Federal Circuit and SCOTUS Update - A whirlwind summary of the most important developments in Supreme Court and Federal Circuit case law over the last year. Session 2: The Appointments Clause, Severability, and Forfeiture in Arthrex - The Federal Circuit’s decision in Arthrex, Inc. v. Smith & Nephew, Inc., 941 F.3d 1320 (2019), purported to save the power of the USPTO’s administrative patent judges to conduct inter partes review by abrogating for-cause removal protection for those judges. This presentation examines the Appointments Clause concerns that motivated that abrogation, whether severing the for-cause removal protection was a proper response, and whether the Appointments Clause challenge should have been considered forfeit as not raised before the USPTO. Session 3: Recent Developments in Claim Construction - The baseline of patent application preparation/prosecution, district court trials, Federal Circuit appeals, and AIA post-grant review proceedings, is claim construction. Review the important 2019-2020 claim construction cases and issues at the Federal Circuit and trial court levels, as well as at the PTAB. Examine the PTAB’s procedural and substantive claim construction “rules, practices, and etc." And discuss adherence to the APA by the PTAB under various circumstances, plus rule and practice changes to mandate PTAB consideration of claim constructions from other proceedings. Session 4: Judicial Panel - Hear distinguished judges from the District Courts discuss their experiences hearing and trying patent cases.

    Good advice on questioning the results of tests. Not as interested in hair morphology.

    Is the use of the words "negroid" and "mongoloid" necessary? This isn't meant to be a "politically correct" issue. These three categorizations of race are no longer anthropologically accepted, and the courts have sought to distance the judiciary from categorizations based on an anacrhonistic grouping of individuals based on perceived similar physical characteristics. Indeed, attempting to categorize persons into three, or in some instances four, "races" is a social rather than scientific construct. It detracts from the course which provides some decent information and sources to reference when arguing a case but spends too much energy on the more technical aspects of hair and not enough on the practical application of the growing body of scientific concensus regarding how toxicology results could be discriminatorily applied. As an aside, skipping over the aspect of things such as the presence of heavy metals (example taken from a slide) in hair is a disservice to criminal application of this information.
