Upcoming Event


November 20, 2014

Join us for the launch of a new season of the Engelberg Center's IPNY series.

Laura Sheridan, Patent Counsel at Google, will discuss ideas for improving the quality of U.S. patents, focusing both on institutional reforms that could make the PTO better at turning away low-quality patent applications, and changes in the patent law that could also help us reach that goal.  The Engelberg Center on Innovation Law & Policy faculty will also share their insights.

Laura is Patent Counsel at Google, where she works on patent policy and manages a team focused on patent strategy. As a registered patent attorney, Laura was previously in private practice, where she specialized in patent prosecution, litigation, IP due diligence, and post-grant practice before the Patent Office. She speaks regularly on patent challenges under the AIA, the patent reform landscape, and defensive strategies against non-practicing entities. Laura studied engineering at Cornell University and received her J.D. from Fordham Law School.

This event has been approved for 1 New York CLE credit for both experienced and newly admitted attorneys.
