Please join us for a panel presentation from four judges for the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California.  The panelists will share their insights into the Court’s management of IP cases following the expiration of the patent pilot program, statistics from 2023 IP filings, and Magistrate Judges’ responsibilities in IP litigation.  Background information for the presenting judges is available on the SDIPLA website. We ask that any questions for the panel be submitted in advance to the SDIPLA email address, sdiplaorg@gmail.com.
