Christmas is a great season for lectures and if you would like some IPReg CPD hours to garnish yours, don't head off to the Royal Institution (that's where the photo on the right was taken) but go instead to the CIPA Hall at 95 Chancery Lane where London IP are hosting a CPD session designed particularly with the needs of IP practitioners in mind.

The event takes place from 12:30 on 15 December and costs just £50 plus VAT for a full afternoon's entertainment and education. To register just click this link to send your details

There are two components: an update on case law and a couple of sessions on legal issues that are most important to patent attorneys. James Mitchiner, a long-standing member of this group with his own firm in south London is going to take us through the law relating to breach of confidence and non disclosure agreements.  Make sure you know why they are important and be confident in recommending the right one to your client.

Next, we are promised the anatomy of a patent licence from Tim Marshall another solicitor with his own firm in north London 

The case law updates will be provided by Dr Sarah Boxall, a patent attorney and IP strategist who has her own firm in Sandwich . She takes on the recent EPO and patent case law

A little light relief on the trademark case law will also be included. this time, not from a solo but by Dennis Lee of London law firm Silverman Sherliker LLP

As well as being highly economic or, this promises to be a good opportunity to get out of the office and enjoy some challenging intellectual property discussion before the season of mince pies commences in earnest. I hope to see you there.
