Patent Law's Peerless Appellate Architecture
Nies Lecture Number
Prof. Nard states that the Federal Circuit has been criticized for its insularity and “inadequately nuanced jurisprudence.” He asserts that if the Federal Circuit had a peer court and a “sister-circuit jurisprudence” it would have meaningful impact on the appellate strategy for patent law cases.
