Presented by: Iowa Law Review & the Iowa Innovation, Business and Law Center

 Friday, October 5, 2018
University of Iowa College of Law
Iowa City, Iowa


The symposium focuses on the intersection of patent and administrative law, a juncture that has become particularly salient in recent years and is poised to become even more so with the Supreme Court’s continuing interest in both patent and administrative law. Leading scholars will address the fundamental question of how patent law was, is, and should be administered, providing insights into the patent office's historical origins, its place in the modern administrative state, and recommendations for its future evolution.
