GILES SUTHERLAND RICH PATENT MOOT COURT
(LAWO-7015) - 2 UNITS
The Giles Sutherland Rich Memorial Moot Court competition is named for the late Judge Giles Sutherland Rich of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The competition, comprising four regional meets and a national final meet in Washington, DC, is sponsored by the American Intellectual Property Law Association. The problem generally involves one or more issues of patent law and may also involve trademark, copyright and litigation issues.
Each law school may enter as many as two teams but only one may be permitted to argue orally. Each team is composed of two members, who divide the allotted time for oral argument. Each team must prepare both a 30-page appellant's brief and a 30-page appellee's brief. After the briefs are completed, both teams will participate in frequent practice oral arguments before members of the faculty and members of the Patent Bar.
