This CLE provides an overview of the intersection between cannabis, which remains a Schedule I controlled substance in the United States, and intellectual property. Our presenters will discuss patent prosecution and current patent litigation concerning cannabis, cannabis trademarks and trade secrets, and the intersection between federal and state intellectual property law.
Noon CLE meetings are typically held at the Belo Mansion on the fourth Thursday of every month (with some exceptions).
We also host periodic breakfast CLE roundtable discussions at a North Dallas location on important IP topics.
