I hope that you had a happy, fun, and safe New Year. Thank you for a great 2007!  Until we visit again, here is a roundup of some of the best of 2007.

1. Prosecution After KSR

“The teaching-suggestion-motivation test is useful but ultimately too rigid. What might you consider arguing now?”

“From the rules regarding after final practice to examples of how to justify the entry of after final papers, a guide to after final practice is always useful.”

5. Advising Your Clients About The Duty Of Candor

“Applicants and their practitioners benefit when Applicants are reminded of the duty of candor. Here is one system to do it.”
