“An Examination of Matal v. Tam Through the Lens of Diversity in the Legal Profession”

Join us for our first CLE* in a series per Illinois Supreme Court Rule 794(d) effective July 1, 2017 requiring Illinois attorneys to take one hour of diversity and inclusion CLE during each two-year reporting period. This CLE will review the 2017 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Matal v. Tam in which the plaintiff applied for a trademark on the mark "The Slants" for his band, which was denied by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The panelists will discuss the substance of the decision from the viewpoint of the legal professionals and judges involved discussing how and whether more diversity among the attorneys and judges may have impacted the outcome.
