While many attorneys are familiar with proceedings in state and federal courts, a case before the Trademark Trial & Appeal Board (TTAB) is a special appearance before a federal administrative court. Many trademark applicants, especially pro se applicants, are unaware that filing a trademark application may result in appearing before the TTAB or defending a challenge of the application's existence by third parties. This course is designed to familiarize attorneys with the TTAB as a whole and the very specific rhythm of such a case.
