The American University Law Review is the only law journal in the nation to host an annual symposium dedicated exclusively to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The fourth issue of each volume serves as the companion book to this annual event.
Volume 72’s Federal Circuit Symposium was held on Friday, November 4, 2022, at the American University Washington College of Law. Derrick Brent, the Deputy Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Deputy Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, provided the Keynote Address.
The symposium was held in person for the first time since 2019, as the previous two had to be held virtually, due to the coronavirus pandemic. The event was filled with fantastic dialogue and engaging debate around the topics of patents, trademarks, veterans’ law, government contracts, and international trade.
This specialized issue begins with a Foreword by the Honorable Judge Jimmie V. Reyna, who serves on the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. On behalf of the Law Review, I hope you enjoy our deep dive into some fantastic articles surrounding the subject matter of the Federal Circuit.
With Respect and Gratitude,
