On Friday, February 24, 2017, the Boston University Journal of Science and Technology Law will host a symposium entitled “Bridging the Gap between the Federal Courts and the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office.”

The goals of this Symposium are (1) to provide an opportunity to “bridge the gap” between the scholar and the practitioner by examining how the AIA’s foundational tenants and nuances are used and understood in academia and in practice, and (2) to create a dialogue whereby academics and practitioners can learn from one another and share their insights with students. In particular, the Symposium will look at the tensions created between the courts, especially the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and the administrative bodies involved in the procedures established by the AIA.
