The Honorable Donald Verrilli Headlines the 10th Annual Supreme Court IP Review
On September 20, 2019, Chicago-Kent College of Law will host its 10th annual Supreme Court IP Review, a conference designed to provide intellectual property practitioners, jurists, legal academics and law students with a review of IP cases from the United States Supreme Court’s previous Term and a preview of cases and cert. petitions on the docket for the upcoming Term.
The Honorable Donald B. Verrilli Jr., 46th solicitor general of the United States and a partner at Munger, Tolles & Olson, will deliver the 2019 Supreme Court IP Review address. Before serving as solicitor General, Mr. Verrilli served as deputy White House counsel, and previously as an associate deputy attorney general at the U.S. Department of Justice. As solicitor general, he represented the United States before the Supreme Court in landmark victories, including his successful advocacy in defense of the Affordable Care Act, for marriage equality, and in favor of federal preemption authority in the immigration field. He also achieved important victories in two patent cases, Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank International and Association for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics, and one copyright case, Golan v. Holder, as well as MGM Studios, Inc. v. Grokster, when he worked in private practice.
As a part of SCIPR’s 10th anniversary, the conference will include an exciting new feature: a panel of experts discussing "Taking Stock of the Past 10 Years at SCOTUS." Participants for the panel will be selected from abstracts submitted in response to the call for papers.
