Chair CIPA Administrators Committee

The CIPA IP Paralegals’ Committee is delighted to invite you to the 2019 Conference to be held on Friday, 27th September, 2019 at Millennium Gloucester Hotel London Kensington.

The Committee is hard at work to ensure the Conference delivers topics relevant to paralegals in their daily working tasks, such as EPO, GB and PCT formalities; Information Disclosures and US Formalities; Common Mistakes and their Remedies and - dare we mention it - Brexit!.  We are arranging for high quality speakers from the UK IPO, EPO, WIPO and the profession to deliver these sessions.  Please keep an eye out for more information as we get closer to the conference. We are determined to provide a competitive price for a one day conference at one of the most prestigious hotels in London £210.00 (excluding VAT). Those of you who are able to confirm attendance in advance will be entitled to the Early Bird rates.

2019 sees the 20th Anniversary of the CIPA Patent Administration Course - now the Introductory Certificate in Patent Administration.  To celebrate, the Committee is organising a dinner following the Conference costing £65.00 (excluding VAT). As ever, the conference sessions are subject to change depending on the availability of speakers, but we hope to be in a position to publish a programme soon. The CIPA Paralegals’ Conference has been growing over the last few years and the new venue will allow more paralegals to attend.  We hope that you are able to join us in September where the other Committee looks forward to seeing you.
