Summer School

A summer school in European intellectual property law has been held successfully at the CEIPI since 2009.

9th edition took place from June 26 to July 7, 2017.

Unique in Europe and in the world, this Summer School offers a two weeks training as theoretical as practical for both scientific and law backgrounds. In fact, the division of the course into two parts, the first devoted to a general stream and the second a specialized stream, during which students may opt for a “Patent path” or a “Trademark and Designs path” grants to this Summer School its specificity.

The lecturers are selected from the academic staff of CEIPI, from experts in the intellectual property field, including professors and experienced practitioners but also official representatives, examiners, members of opposition chambers and so on.

The Summer School aims at providing a general overview of the intellectual property in the context of the European Union’s legal system, and likewise, to bring practical solutions in regard to intellectual and industrial property rights litigation in Europe. The course is addressed especially to students and practitioners willing to gain a solid background in European and international intellectual property law.
