Bias: Everyone Has It, Now What?
We all have bias. And while it’s incredibly difficult to de-bias brains, it is possible to de-bias systems and organizations. Diversity Lab uses data, behavioral science, and innovation, to shift law firm processes to minimize bias and redesign the advancement and hiring processes through successful initiatives like the Mansfield Rule.
Join this interactive session and learn to identify where bias shows up in your decision-making processes and what can be done to disrupt bias for long-lasting, inclusive change.

This webinar intends to provide the background and jurisprudence on the patentability of chemical and pharmaceutical selection inventions. The panel will discuss topics such as novelty, obviousness (or inventive step), and sufficiency of disclosure as it relates to selection inventions and the prior art for which the invention is said to be generically disclosed. Several case examples will be provided and similarities and differences between the US and Europe will be discussed. The discussion will take into account the most recent developments in EPO practice and case law and will review the recent US Federal Circuit decision in Mylan v. Merck.
