Testing, Testing, 1-2-3: The Federal Court’s New Guidelines & the Role of Expert Witnesses

June 26, 2014

Don Cameron will be a speaker, while Amrita V. Singh will be moderating Intellectual Property Institute of Canada’s (IPIC) webinar held on Thursday, June 26th from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. 

Members of the Federal Court IP User’s Group Committee will be discussing the Federal Court issued Notice to the Profession, based on two recent conflicting decisions of the Court prior to its issuance: AbbVie Corp. v. Janssen Inc. (2014 FC 55), and Dow v. Nova (2012 FC 754). Focus will be placed on how practitioners should interpret the language of the Notice, and what it actually means for attendance by opposing parties at experiments intended to be relied upon at trial and the role of their expert witnesses.

The webinar is hosted by the IPIC Young Practitioners Committee, which serves the interests of young intellectual property practitioners including providing professional development and networking opportunities, and outreach to potential student members.
