About the Institute
The CASRIP Summer Institute is the benchmark for
intellectual property summer programs in the United States.
Directed by world-renowned University of Washington professor, Toshiko Takenaka,
the Summer Institute teaches the fundamentals of patent
prosecution, patent litigation, and technology licensing and
management, from a comparative law perspective.
Summer Institute faculty include distinguished visiting professors, such as
Professor Martin Adelman from George Washington University, patent examiners
from the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and experienced government
officials and litigators from Seattle, Silicon Valley, and Washington, D.C.
A highlight of the Summer Institute is the two-day
High Technology Protection Summit, which attracts
experts from around the world to discuss cutting-edge legal
issues in intellectual property law and innovation.
The Summer Institute also offers opportunities to network with patent practitioners during fun summer activities -
a Mariners' game, receptions, a graduation dinner and
other events hosted by local Seattle law firms as well as an
optional trip to the USPTO and the Federal Circuit.
In 2013, supreme court justices from China and Taiwan as well as patent judges
from Japan and Korea plan to attend the CASRIP Summer Institute.
