Patent Attorney Interns Course 2023

1 Mar, 2023

The second cycle of the Patent Attorneys Association’s intern course in cooperation with the Patent Office is underway!

The Interns Course of the Patent Attorneys Association in cooperation with the Patent Office is intended for interns in IP firms and in companies and is provided free of charge to members of IPAA.

The course is online and takes place from March to June 2023 once a week. The course includes 17 sessions, about 50 academic hours, of which 32 hours are on patents, 3 hours on designs, 3 hours on trademarks and 3 hours on trade secrets and copyright.

The lectures will be given by the best professionals from IP and Law firms, the Patent Office and professionals from the industry.

The course will include a visit at the Patent Office, in which the participants will be exposed to the work of the Patent Office and with procedures before the Registrar.

The course assumes previous knowledge even though it is also open to interns at the beginning of the internship.

The course requires practice and self-study.
