Unique in Europe and in the world, this Summer School offers a two weeks training as theoretical as practical for both scientific and law backgrounds. In fact, the division of the course into two parts, the first devoted to a general stream and the second a specialized stream, during which students may opt for a “Patent path” or a “Trademark and Designs path” grants to this Summer School its specificity.


The Summer School aims at providing a general overview of the intellectual property in the context of the European Union’s legal system, and likewise, to bring practical solutions in regard to intellectual and industrial property rights litigation in Europe. The course is addressed especially to students and practitioners willing to gain a solid background in European and international intellectual property law.

All participants who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate of attendance. Attendance and active participation in at least 80% of the program is required.


The lecturers are selected from the academic staff of CEIPI, from experts in the intellectual property field, including professors and experienced practitioners but also official representatives, examiners, members of opposition chambers and so on.


Events are organized such as a boat-trip around Strasbourg, a visit of European Institution or a guided tour in the heart of the wine road with a wine-tasting. During the day, learn and debate and by night, enjoy the nice city of Strasbourg. Meet practitioners from across Europe and share this marvelous experience with the other participants coming from all around the world!


The Summer School is open to 40 participants. Participation is not limited to professional in IP law. Researchers, legal European professionals not specialized in IP or non european IP experts are also encouraged to apply.
