Welcome to Skilled in the Art. I’m law.com IP reporter Scott Graham. Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending a symposium honoring the career of U.S. District Judge Jeremy Fogel, who retired from the bench last month and began a new career running the Berkeley Judicial Institute. Fogel is a giant in the field of judicial education – and having sat in San Jose more than 30 years, no small contributor to IP law, either. I’ve got some notes from the latter discussion below (and will have more on the overall ceremony later in The Recorder). Please feel free to email me your own thoughts and follow me on Twitter.
