ASTC proudly hosts a 1-hour Webinar with presenters Dr. Karen Lisko (a litigation consultant with Perkins Coie and Past President of the ASTC) and Dr. Kevin Boully (a litigation consultant with Persuasion Strategies and Associate Editor of The Jury Expert).

How savvy are you about decision making in intellectual property litigation? This webinar will test your grasp through quiz questions and answers accompanied by trial strategies that arise from the study of thousands of mock jurors and a few hundred arbitrators and federal judges across the country, incorporating up-to-date measures of relevant perceptions and how they impact your advocacy and arguments in patent litigation in particular. Many of the strategies spring from two Persuasion Strategies consultants’ book, Patently Persuasive, recently published by the ABA. 

Topics include: 

  • Identifying the “juror flip” in juror profiles unique to patent litigation 
  • Persuading judges in effective briefs and Markman hearings 
  • Comparing judges’ and jurors’ perceptions of Non-Practicing Entities (NPEs) in patent litigation 
  • Defining key voir dire questions for both sides in patent cases 
  • Revealing a jury-tested opening statement structure that is most persuasive
