The Academy of European Law (ERA) and Maastricht University (UM) are partnering to develop an attractive offering of professional training in a joint curriculum for patent attorneys wishing to appear before the Unified Patent Court (UPC).
This cooperation project was launched with the entry into force of the Protocol on Provisional Application of the UPC Agreement on 19 January 2022, which marked the birth of the Unified Patent Court as an international organisation.
ERA, as a renowned provider of professional training in EU law, and Maastricht University, as an international university of excellence, will offer a high-standard course giving patent attorneys the best tools to understand the legal framework and procedural rules necessary to litigate before the UPC.
Online and face-to-face sessions: 27-28 September 2023; 19-23 February 2024; 13-17 May 2024
The European Patent Litigation Certificate (EPLC) is designed specifically for European patent attorneys in light of the particular needs of the profession.
Course starts 27 September 2023 – registration is open until 25 September 2023.
Further details regarding the programme, registration and course fees can be found on the dedicated website.
