Training for UPC technical judges: a first for CEIPI

"The creation of the Unified Patent Court represents a turning point in the history of European intellectual property law. The judges of the Unified Patent Court will be central actors for the success of the Unified Patent Court and the entire patent package". 
Not so easy: so will
training help?
So says the Centre for International Intellectual Property Studies (CEIPI) which, in collaboration with the French IP office INPI, is lending its experience in training public servants, its long-standing academic tradition and its connection with key international intellectual property organizations at the service of a training programme which is intended to meet the needs of the new generation of technically qualified judges who will be populating Europe's new Unified Patent Court.

The 1st edition of this course will take place from September to November 2015:

  • 1st. module: 24, 25 and 26 September 2015 
  • 2nd. module: 29, 30 and 31 October 2015 
  • 3rd. module: 19, 20 and 21 November 2015

It will cost you, though. Tuition fees are €2, 900 .

You can download the programme and the registration form via the CEIPI website here. Don't leave it too long though: the deadline for enrolment is 1 August 2015.
