Oral Proceedings, be it before an Examining/Opposition Division, or before a Boardof Appeal, are an important step in the life of an application/patent.They can be a make or break opportunity.
In this two-day special course our experts will show you all the different aspects which have to be taken into account when being summoned to Oral Proceedings. It will go from the preparation through to the actual presentation at the Oral Proceedings itself, without neglecting important procedural aspects which can play a determining role. Participants will be shown techniques and rules for successful participation at Oral Proceedings before the EPO. They will be given the legal, technical and practical information essential for being successful not only before Examining/Opposition Divisions, but also before Boards of Appeal.
