E4 Decoupling Patent Law – An Interview With Greg Reilly

My guest today is Professor Greg Reilly, Assistant Professor at the Chicago-Kent College of Law. We are talking today about his forthcoming publication in the Boston University Law Review: ¬†“Decoupling Patent Law.”

Professor graduated summa cum laude from Georgetown University and ¬†magna cum laude from Harvard Law School and clerked for Judge Timothy Dyk of the Federal Circuit. Professor Reilly’s research and teaching interests are at the intersection of intellectual property and federal courts/procedure, with a particular focus on how institutions and decision makers resolve patent disputes. His projects have focused on the fit between patent doctrines and the relevant decision makers; patent claim construction; patent litigation reform; and the efforts of the Eastern District of Texas to attract patent cases.

Prior to joining the Chicago-Kent faculty, Professor Reilly held a tenure-track appointment at California Western School of Law and was a Teaching Fellow and Lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School. He previously spent five years as an associate at Morrison & Foerster LLP, where he had extensive appellate and district court experience litigating patent, trademark, complex commercial, and products liability cases.
