About the Institute

CASRIP Summer Institute at UW Law

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.
