About the Institute
The CASRIP Summer Institute is the benchmark for
intellectual property summer programs in the United States.
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.
This year a highlight of the Summer Institute will be the Distinguished Shidler Lecture on July 22, 2016.
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.
