If the online purchase button is not showing, then the on-demand program is not yet available. **** In 2011, Congress totally rewrote the Patent Act's definition of prior art. By replacing the traditional "first-to-invent" system with a "first-inventor-to-file" system, the concept of what was considered prior art was substantially changed. In doing so, Congress kept some familiar concepts like "on-sale" in the Act, but included a catchall qualifier of "otherwise available to the public". Conventional wisdom was that "on-sale" prior art would not include non-public information. This past term, a unanimous Supreme Court in Helsinn Healthcare SA v. Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc., found otherwise, and affirmed a holding by the Federal Circuit that a confidential sale of an invention ready for patenting was still prior art -- even if

Lessons from 'Michael Cohen v. United States'

Program Number: 2964 Presenter: Kelly Cullen, Esq., Wendy Curtis, Esq., E. Scott Morvillo, Esq., Ellen Murphy, Esq., Jeremiah Weasenforth, Esq.

On April 9, 2018, the FBI raided the office, home, and hotel room of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, seizing business records, emails, and electronic data from computers and data storage devices. Because Cohen is an attorney, the documents seized needed to be reviewed for attorney-client privileged communications before they could be turned over to federal investigators. The Court considered using Technology Assisted Review or “TAR” to expedite the privilege review process, but ultimately decided against it. This seminar will explore TAR, how and why it’s an important tool in certain litigations, and why requiring the use of TAR as the sole arbiter for a privilege review in a criminal case is improper and potentially unconstitutional.

Untangling Fear in Lawyering

Program Number: 2963 Presenter: Heidi K. Brown

For many law students and lawyers, studying and practicing law can be scary. We rarely talk about fear in law school or legal training. Instead, well-meaning mentors advise, “Just do it…fake it till you make it…if your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough.” Yet, scientists confirm that fear blocks learning and performance. It can stoke anxiety and depression in a profession already saturated with mental health challenges. If we can turn down the dial of stress and anxiety even one notch for even one struggling individual in our profession by sparking a dialogue about the reality of fear in lawyering, let’s do it. This presentation discusses the reality, causes, manifestations, and consequences of fear in legal practice, and offers a four-step process for law students and lawyers to reframe fear into fortitude
