Dear Colleagues,
Welcome to the Summer 2019 Edition of the BPLA Newsletter. Yes, it’s still technically summer even though the mornings may not feel like it.
In this edition, we provide a recap of our annual Judges Dinner, which was held in June at the Moakley Courthouse and honored U.S. District Court Judge George A. O’Toole, Jr. with the BPLAs 2019 Distinguished Public Service Award.  We provide a recap of our well-attended summer rooftop outing overlooking Boston Harbor at the Envoy Hotel.  We also report on committee activities, including the Case Law and In House committees, and share guest posts from colleagues abroad with updates on new procedural changes at the EPO and patentability of diagnostic methods in Australia.  In addition, this edition includes announcements concerning upcoming events, members on the move, and other matters of interest to our membership.
