16th Annual Bench & Bar Conference
The Federal Circuit Bar Association's 16th Annual Bench & Bar Conference will be held from June 18 - June 21, 2014, at the Grove Park Inn located in Asheville, North Carolina. The theme is "Sharpening Case Management: The Challenges at Home and Abroad," and the conference will have meetings about topics including IP protection trends, agency action trends, ethics and civility, damages litigation, customs enforcement and cybersecurity, to name a few.
