The SDIPLA has two primary aims: (1) connect local IP practioners with each other, and (2) provide topical, meaningful continuing legal education. We do this by having monthly dinner meetings comprising a social hour and dinner, and we invite top-quality speakers to discuss cutting-edge IP topics. Indeed, the SDIPLA has a long tradition of providing valuable continuing legal education to our members by securing top-quality, nationally recognized speakers to address the most current IP issues.

Impact of the Supreme Court on Patent Enforcement
As more and more patent cases are decided by the U.S. Supreme Court, the complex issues at hand warrant in-depth analysis and discussion. Recovery of attorney fees, proving induced infringement, whether abstract ideas are patent ineligible, and the standard for determining indefiniteness have all been major components of recent decisions.
The faculty presenting this one-day conference, scheduled for March 12, 2015, will explore these issues in detail.
Who would benefit most from attending this program?
Intellectual property practitioners, both those involved with patent litigation and patent prosecution.
