I'll put out a more formal post in a couple of weeks, but I wanted to highlight an upcoming one-day conference here in Columbia Missouri on October 4, 2013 that is being jointly sponsored by the University of Missouri School of Law and also the Journal of Dispute Resolution. The general topic is "Resolving Patent Disputes" and we have a number of interesting speakers. I am co-organizing the conference along with Professor Jim Levin. Professor Levin is a longtime mediator and professor of mediation. Our keynote speaker is Greg Gorder who is one of the co-founders of Intellectual Ventures.
Conference is free with 5 hours of CLE credit. Let me know if you are planning on coming from out-of-town or if you need more details.
