PennLaw Wins AIPLA National Championship!
Congratulations are in order! 3Ls Greg Manas and Brian Springer won the American Intellectual Property Law Association’s Giles Sutherland Rich National Patent Law Moot Court on Friday. They defeated a ten-team field in the national championship round, which was held at the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington DC. The final round was judged by a panel of Federal Circuit Judges.
3Ls Jake Hartman and Jenny Liu made it to the national quarterfinals.
This completes a very successful patent law moot court competition for the students in 2015. The Penn Law teams placed first and second in the western regional competition in March, also winning best briefs and best oral.
Prof. Polk Wagner served as the team’s mentor and coach.
