This virtual course provides participants with an understanding of the main principles and rules governing trade mark and design law at the international, regional (European Union), and national level. It also allows them to explore some of the most topical developments facing trade marks and designs today.
Day 1 focuses on the nature and rationale of trade mark and design law, as well as requirements and scope of protection. Day 2 is dedicated to the analysis of recent developments and case law. On both days, participants will have the opportunity to test their understanding and apply their knowledge of the topics covered by practicing on real-life scenarios.
