    Interesting topics

    I enjoyed all the presentations, but the NIL discussion was particularly interesting.

    I'm a transactional attorney representing healthcare providers. I picked this group of classes because it is so different from my practice. It was great. I have tremendous respect for those attorneys representing migrants/immigrants. They are truly passionate about what they do.

    Well presented. excellent presenters

    The NIL presentation was very interesting! Would love to see more on that topic!

In the first 9 months after a patent issues, an inter partes review is not available but a post grant review is available and can be raised on any issue, not just 102-103 on prior printed publications and this presents unique opportunities and problems. It permits 101 grounds, and also 112 grounds, as well as prior art that are not printed publications. The estoppel provision for PGR matches its breadth, which means that if you file a PGR you lose any defenses not raised in the PTAB, and could be forced to trial only on infringement and if available, inequitable conduct and other equitable defenses.
