"Case Law Online" is a series of webinars giving you an overview of relevant key decisions and recent developments in the EPO's Boards of Appeal (BoA) case law. Experienced epi Speakers will talk about topics like:

  • Plausibility (Chris Mercer) 
  • Priority (Leythem Wall) 
  • Clarity (Mathieu de Rooij or Leythem Wall) 
  • Disclaimers (Thomas Pott)

The four 1-hour webinars will discuss recent Enlarged BoA and other significant decisions, which every patent attorney should have in mind during examination, opposition or appeal proceedings. Participants can ask questions and discuss the topics.
