The Unified Patent Court: Oral Hearing on the Rules of Procedure

09 December 2014

The oral hearing on the UPC Rules of Procedure took place on 26 November in Trier. This is the last stage of the public consultation on these rules, which are expected to be established in a final form in the Preparatory Committee meeting in May 2015. There was a lively debate on issues such as opt-out, language regime, injunctions and procedural appeals. An account of the hearing and some comments can be found here. A report by the Legal Group of the Preparatory Committee is expected to become available in due course, as well as a video recording.
