(PRWEB) September 03, 2013
Dr. Lulin Gao, one of China’s leading intellectual property (IP) experts, returns to The John Marshall Law School in Chicago to teach the Master Class in Patent Law and Practice in China from Sept. 16 through 20, 2013.
This master class led by Gao, the honorary president of the All-China Patent Agents Association, will give students and U.S. practicing attorneys a better understanding of the current Chinese IP system—especially the patent system—in order to help them build a strong IP portfolio and use IP rights to create value in China. Gao was commissioner of the Chinese Patent Office and a founding commissioner of China’s State Intellectual Property Office.
Participants will get an introduction to Chinese Patent Law, with special attention paid to the development of Chinese Patent Law with a special focus on the key points of the 2009 Chinese Patent Law. In addition, Gao will give a comparison of Chinese Patent Law, U.S. Patent Law and the Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS).
Participants also will review a number of the important Chinese patent-related cases; administrative and judicial routes for patent dispute settlement; means for multinational companies to acquire and enforce patent rights in China; and international harmonization of patent law.
This class meets from 9 a.m. to noon Sept. 16 through 20, 2013, at the law school, 315 S. Plymouth Ct., Chicago. There is a $250 fee. Registrations are being accepted at events.jmls.edu/MasterClass
