Vicki Salmon: “The Unified Patents Court and the Unitary Patent”

Public Lectures Series 2016

Thursday 21 April 18.00, EB 206

After more than 50 years in preparation, a unitary patent and unified patents court is now around the corner.  Work has started on setting up the court, with a view to it ensuring that it is up and working in the next couple of years.  European patent attorneys will be able to represent clients before the UPC.  This talk will provide an overview of this topic and address issues which patent attorneys will be dealing with in their practices in the near future in relation to the UPC and unitary patent.
