Are you an intellectual property practitioner or law student with an interest in IP? Can you be in Chicago on September 15?

Then you may want to take a break from gazing at architecture from the riverboat cruise or Crown Fountain in Millennium Park - both of which are worth seeing, if you haven't already - to attend the Chicago-Kent Supreme Court IP Review (SCIPR) at Chicago-Kent College of Law.

Attendees will participate in panel discussions of the Supreme Court's 2010 IP cases, and preview the 2011 session's IP cases and certiorari petitions under the expert guidance of expert panelists:

  • Judge Kathleen M. O'Malley, Federal Circuit Court of Appeals.
  • Judge, James F. Holderman, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
  • David Kappos, Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
  • R. (Ted) Edward Cruz, Partner at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP.
  • Rochelle C. Dreyfuss, Professor at New York University School of Law and Co-director of the Engelberg Center on Innovation Law and Policy at NYU.
  • David C. Frederick, Partner at Kellogg, Huber, Hansen, Todd, Evans & Figel PLLC.
  • Seth D. Greenstein, Partner at Constantine Cannon LLP.
  • Mark A. Lemley, Founding Partner at Durie Tangri LLP
  • Edward Lee, Professor at Chicago-Kent College of Law and Director of the Program in IP Law.
  • Aaron M. Panner, Partner at Kellogg, Huber, Hansen, Todd, Evans & Figel PLLC.
  • Carter G. Phillips, Managing Partner at Sidley Austin
  • Larry Rosenberg, Partner at Jones Day.
  • David L. Schwartz, Professor at Chicago-Kent College of Law.
  • Eric J. Schwartz, Partner at Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp LLP.
  • Paul Wolfson, Partner at Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr.

The IP conference will feature 50 minute discussions on key IP cases from the last year: Board of Trustees of the Leland Stanford Junior University v. Roche Molecular Systems, Costco v. Omega, Microsoft v. i4i Limited Partnership, Global-Tech Appliances, Inc. v. SEB S.A., and Golan v. Holder. The conference will conclude with a 75 minute wrap-up of cases pending review in the 2011 Supreme Court session.

Registration for the IP conference is $30 for the general public and $15 for outside academics and students. For more information, visit the SCIPR website or contract Patricia O'Neal at
