We are pleased to announce that CIPA is presenting the 2020 Intellectual Property Enterprise Court course.
With the growing popularity of the IPEC amongst SMEs, and its more EPO-like procedures, more patent attorneys are taking the opportunity to offer competitive litigation services. Also there will be opportunities to run revocation and even infringement actions in the Unified Patents Court.
The aim of this course is to provide experienced patent attorneys (3+ years PQE) with an understanding of the procedures of the IPEC and the skills required to run litigation (the skills being transferable to the UPC) by running a patent case study from issue to trial.
Much of the time will be spent in groups of four or five working on the case study, under the supervision of a tutor. There will also be plenary sessions dealing with procedural law, case management and practical aspects of running a case and preparing for trial. There is nothing like a “long weekend” course, with hands-on experience for delivering the required levels of competency and confidence to act.
The dates of the course are:
In House (CIPA, 20-23 Halton House, Holborn, EC1N 2JD) - Wednesday 18 March 2020
Residential (De Vere Beaumont Windsor) - Thursday 16 – Saturday 18 April 2020
