According to Article 48 UPCA, to be able to represent a party before the Court, the patent attorney should first of all be entitled to act as a professional representative before the European Patent Office in accordance with Article 134 EPC. Proof of the entitlement will therefore be requested from participants wishing to obtain the EPLC.
National patent attorneys with knowledge and experience in patent law and litigation may be accepted on the basis of a proven track record.
Fee: 3800 Euro. This price includes lunches, and coffee breaks served during the face-to-face courses. Participants will organise and pay for their own accommodation during the face-to-face courses.
