Some of our top frequently asked questions

Do I need any previous training or experience of intellectual property (IP) to take any of the courses?

If you have no previous training or experience at all in IP, we would recommend that you take our “Introduction to Intellectual Property” course first.  However, some of our other courses have a basic, introductory session to bring everyone to the required level of understanding required for that course.

Do the courses cover all forms of intellectual property rights (e.g. trade marks, designs, copyright, utility models, trade secrets, know how, patents)?

While other forms of IP are covered, particularly in the “Introduction to Intellectual Property” course, most of the courses tend to focus on patents and patent law.

Do the courses only cover UK law?

As the courses are given by UK and European Patent Attorneys, the focus is on patent law and practice in the UK and Europe.  However, because the US is such an important market, there are some sessions on US patent law from a European perspective.
