USPTO Law School Clinic Certification Program Visit

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) hosted students and faculty participating in its Law School Clinic Certification Program on April 10, 2017.  IP Clinic Student Eric Levi and patent faculty supervisor David Grossman represented the Glushko-Samuelson Intellectual Property Law Clinic at the event.  Faculty and students from law school clinics from across the country attended this full day of presentations and discussions with USPTO administrators, examiners and judges.  Participants also attended a Trademark Trial and Appeal Board hearing where General Mills argued in favor of obtaining a trademark for a yellow box containing wheat based toroidal shaped cereal (Think Cheerios). Finally, students and faculty had the opportunity to network with participants from other schools.  The IP Clinic has participated in the USPTO student practice program since it was established as a pilot program more than ten years ago.
