In light of recent Supreme and Federal Circuit decisions, especially Alice Corp. v. CLS Banking, Association for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics, and Mayo v. Prometheus, it can be difficult to formulate successful intellectual property (IP) strategies in this rapidly shifting legal environment. This session will use the case study methodology to work through these issues.  You’ll be provided with a framework of how to discuss patent limitations with faculty; a patent and claim strategy that meets current standards; and proper actions to take during prosecution. In addition, two case studies will be presented - one on a medical diagnostic technology and the other on a computer/software disclosure. Our expert panel will discuss and give advice, with ample time for audience participation.
