Patent court of appeals heads to Silicon Valley

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit will be on tour in Silicon Valley during the week of November 3--a rare occurrence for these judges normally based in D.C.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit will be on tour in Silicon Valley the week of November 3.

The court, which is in charge of reviewing appeals of patent-related cases for the entire United States, normally works only in Washington, D.C. So if you live near Silicon Valley, and you're interested in patent law, this is a rare opportunity to see the judges in your own backyard.

Judges from the court will hear cases at several locations during that week including at Santa Clara University School of Law, Stanford University School of Law, and the U.S. District Courts in San Francisco and San Jose. For more, see the court's official announcements.
