Landers Patent Book Out

October 24, 2008

Professor Amy Landers’ treatise, Understanding Patent Law, has been published by LexisNexis.

The book is suitable for use with any casebook to complement the study of patent law. It features coverage of all major topics in the field, examples that illustrate the application of the most abstract and complex doctrines, summaries of major cases, and discussions of the policy and historical underpinnings of the primary doctrines.

“Intellectual property law is an exciting, dynamic and important field,” Landers said. “However, it is difficult to overstate the complexity that patent law presents to those engaging with the subject matter for the first time. I wrote this book with aspiring young IP attorneys in mind.”

Landers practiced law for 10 years with Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe in San Francisco, representing major Fortune 500 companies, before joining the faculty in the fall of 2004. She teaches Torts, Patent Law, and Intellectual Property and Unfair Competition at McGeorge.

Landers is a visiting professor at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law for the 2008-09 academic year.
