Silicon Valley partner Bijal Vakil is a presenter at the Annual Berkeley-Stanford Advanced Patent Law Institute (APLI). The event will take place on December 12-13, 2019 in Palo Alto, California.
APLI offers a results-oriented, in-depth look at the latest developments in patent law and practice. Co-organized by Berkeley Center for Law & Technology and Stanford Law School, the event presents an expert faculty of judges, academics, litigators, patent prosecutors, and senior IP counsel from major corporations.
Bijal will be moderating a panel on diversity and inclusion, exploring policies for promoting diversity, including hiring guidelines by tech companies that request that their outside counsel align with their customer base and with the population in general.
