Chief Judge Paul Michel (Retired): Inaugural Speaker in PTOS Distinguished Lecture Series



By Christyann Pulliam

Chief Judge Paul Michel (Retired) was the inaugural speaker in The Lighter Taper: The PTOS Distinguished Lecture Series on February 15, 2012.  In 1813, Thomas Jefferson described the need to balance the protection of invention with the necessity of the sharing of ideas to promote progress.  He wrote:  “He who receives ideas from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine receives light without darkening me”.   PTOS has taken up this challenge to spread ideas by lighting the taper of those around us.  The former Chief Judge spoke about “Beating the Backlog of Examinations and Re-Examinations with Proven Judicial Efficiency Techniques”.
