In coordination with the Hot Topics Subcommittee of the Patent Law Committee, we are pleased to present a behind the scenes look at the 2019 Revised Guidance on Section 101.

Ms. June Cohan, Senior Legal Advisor in the Office of Patent Legal Administration at the USPTO will discuss the revised Guidance and provide selected USPTO examples and insights illustrating how the USPTO analyzes claims involving “laws of nature or natural phenomena,” “abstract ideas,” and “mental steps.”

Ms. Cohan practiced patent law for 16 years, has taught advanced patent law and intellectual property courses at Georgetown University and George Washington University. She joined the USPTO in 2013, where she specializes in patent subject matter eligibility and Section 112 issues.

Marina Zalevsky, Chair of the AIPLA Section 101 Subcommittee of the Patent Law Committee, will discuss initial impressions of how Examiners have been applying the Guidance and its effect on practice.
 
Presented by: June Cohan of Office of Patent Legal Administration at the USPTO; and Marina Zalevsky of Sughrue Mion PLLC
