Signed into law in September 2011, the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA) was the federal government’s answer to modernize the U.S. patent system for the first time since at least 1952. Approaching the 10th anniversary of the AIA, SMU Dedman School of Law will present a symposium on emerging intellectual property issues on February 26, 2021.
During the 17th annual symposium, Jackson Walker partner Nate St. Clair will join a panel, entitled “Practicing Patent Law After the AIA.” Fellow panelists will include Michael D. Pegues (Polsinelli), Aamir Haq (Hewitt Packard Enterprise), and Angela Oliver (Haynes and Boone).
