The Informals Committee is happy to announce that the highly popular annual Informals trip to the Patent Office in Newport has been arranged. This year the visit will take place on the:
- 1st June 2017
- 8th June 2017
- 15th June 2017
This visit is a great opportunity for trainee patent attorneys of any level of experience to see what happens in the Patent Office.
Previously the programme included:
- Various talks organised by the IPO on topics such as accelerated patent prosecution, litigation and dispute resolution and seminars on either patentability of biotech inventions or excluded matter
- A claim drafting workshop
- A meeting with an examiner
- A buffet lunch
Due to the high demand of the visit, places are limited and you will therefore have to sign up. Places are allocated on a first come and first-served basis. An email detailing how to sign up will be sent to all CIPA student members in the coming weeks.
We look forward to seeing you all.
