The judges’ seminar is a regular feature on the EUIPO calendar.

A judges’ seminar is taking place at the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) on 18-19 June 2019. The seminar provides national judges and prosecutors who deal with civil and criminal aspects of intellectual property rights the possibility to network with other European colleagues and discuss with them practical issues related to trade marks with low degree of distinctiveness corresponding to Convergence Program 3.

Some 60 judges from 26 countries are expected to attend this specific event.

The judges’ seminar is a regular feature on the EUIPO calendar. It brings together specialist IP judges and prosecutors from across the EU offering a platform for dynamic debate and information exchange in a confidential environment, as well as providing the latest updates on case law and practice.
