In September 2025 we will be offering again an advanced-level course with the aim of giving interested persons with IP background first-hand training, mainly in European Patent Law.

The course will begin with an overview of the European patent system and procedures, continuing with an in-depth treatment of the following topics:

• assessment of novelty and inventive step under the EPC, requirements of sufficient disclosure of the invention,

• the strict approach of the European Patent Office on amending claims – added matter,

• best practice in opposition and appeal proceedings, and

• infringement and litigation under European and German law.

Furthermore, an overview will be given of the new Unitary European Patent and the Unified European Patent Court, as well as the European Union Trade Mark system.

During the course, participants will attend an appeal hearing at the EPO to experience such proceedings first-hand.

The lectures will be presented by Kador & Partner attorneys as well as by prominent IP professionals from the European Patent Office, private practice and industry, including Dr. Ludwig von Zumbusch, litigation specialist at Preu Bohlig & Partner and Mr. Konstantin Schallmoser, LLM, specialist on International Private Law and International Law on Civil Procedure also at Preu Bohlig & Partner.

Furthermore, complimentary social activities will be offered to the participants at the weekends before and after the seminar, for example a sightseeing walking tour of Munich, a cultural event, as well as a trip to the beautiful lake Chiemsee and the famous Neuschwanstein Castle. A visit of the Oktoberfest will also be offered. For more details please see our planned schedule and social program.
