We have a running archive of our previous symposiums. The Review has previously partnered with fellow law journal The Intellectual Property Law Journal to present the "Conference on Patent Damages." Part one is available now. Our 2018 symposium centered around improving judicial efficiency, examining the role of judges, the decrease in jury trials, and the rise of settlements: articles coming soon.
