Chicago Seminar on European Patent Law and Written Disclosure

The Association of Patent Law Firms (APLF) and The DePaul University College of Law’s Center for Intellectual Property Law & Information (CIPLIT) will present a seminar on European patent law, focused on standards for written disclosure.

The presentation, titled “Different Standards in Europe Used in Analyzing Written Disclosure,” will feature Walter Maiwald, the Managing Partner of the German patent firm Maiwald Patentanwalts GmbH. It will be held March 30 from 12 p.m.-1:30 p.m. at DePaul University College of Law, Room 8005, 1 East Jackson Blvd. in Chicago.

North American practitioners frequently confront the very different approach used in Europe for establishing the relevant disclosure of any given text. The presentation will address issues related to analyzing references (What is anticipated/suggested by the reference?); establishing the content of any patent application (What can I claim?); and the priority document.

The event is free for members of the Association of Patent Law Firms. The cost for non-members is $35. A light lunch will be provided.
