This course will address the manner in which patent cases are litigated, with special emphasis on a number of special issues that frequently arise in that context. Topics to be covered include preparation and content of the complaint and answer, discovery, the role of expert witnesses, preliminary injunctions, claim construction and the "Markman hearing," proof of infringement and damages, jury instructions, and appeals. There will be a number of hands-on exercises and a final examination.
