Karen Boyd moderated a panel of Federal Judges at the 16th Annual Advanced Patent Law Institute: Silicon Valley on December 10, 2015. The panel included Judge Andrews (DED), Judge Donato (NDCA), Judge Pallmeyer (NDIL), and Judge Schroeder (EDTX). APLI brings together hundreds of in-house and outside patent counsel from across the region and the country for two days of presentations and panels. The judges’ panel is a perennial favorite, where patent jurists from across the country get the chance to informally share their wisdom with the people who appear before them.
