EPO Case Law seminar

- epi roadshow supported by the EPO
The Case Law seminar will include discussion of the most recent Enlarged Board of Appeal decisions and other recent significant developments in Board of Appeal case law, which every patent attorney should have in mind during examination proceedings, as well as during opposition and appeal proceedings.

The seminar will provide you with an overview of the most recent key decisions and developments in the EPO’s Boards of Appeal case law. The lecture offers a range of subjects, including procedural and substantive topics, and with a mixture of general-interest and more field-specific topics.

Central topics:

  • Disclaimers
  • Clarity
  • Specific applications of the problem-and-solution approach
  • Procedural matters
  • Mock oral proceedings

The speakers will also discuss important tactical and strategic aspects that identify how the decisions can act as useful tools, as well as guidance for avoiding pitfalls.

This seminar is part of a «roadshow» organized by the epi with the support of the EPO Boards of Appeal and the European Patent Academy. The seminar also includes the demonstration of a mock EPO Oral Proceeding. The speakers are Chris Mercer and Leythem Wall, who are epi experts, Oliver Randl and Petra Schmitz, technical and legal members respectively, of the Boards of Appeal.
