Federalist Society Teleforum Conference Call

Featured Speakers:
Robert T. Haslam
Paul R. Michel
Adam Mossoff


A former Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office and former Chief Judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit have recently opined that new changes to the Federal Rules, which heighten pleading standards in patent litigation cases, go a long way to correcting perceived problems in the current patent litigation regime. They claim that, unlike some proposals being contemplated in Congress, these judicially-imposed corrections offer a solution without reducing judicial flexibility. Join us as these and other issues are discussed.


  • Robert T. Haslam, Partner, Covington & Burling LLP
  • Hon. Paul R. Michel, U.S. Court of Appeals, Federal Circuit (ret.)
  • Moderator: Prof. Adam Mossoff, Co-Director of Academic Programs and Senior Scholar, Center for the Protection of Intellectual Property, George Mason University School of Law

Call begins at 1:00 pm Eastern Time.
