We are proud to announce the inaugral Student Conference. A conference designed specifically for professionals currently working towards being a Patent Attorney. 

The conference will be held at ETC venues, Maple House, Birmingham on 30 April 2020. Hosting the event in the Midlands, we hope to see a many of our members from the North as well as the rest of the UK.  

Following recent feedback, it was apparent that there was demand for a conference tailored specifically for student members. Working with the Informals Honorary Secretary and key members of the institute, we have put together a programme to provide useful information and support for trainees. The conference will cover topics such as soft skills training and how to cope with clients and work life; exam and post qualification guidance; PCT for EQE Students and more. View the programme as its updated.

There are a few sponsorship opportunities available and they will be confirmed on a first come first serve basis. Please visit the sponsorship page for more information.
