Following Helen Smith’s post reporting from the Oxford unitary patent conference, I was interested to see this article by Franklin Dehousse, Professor (in abeyance) at the University of Liège and judge at the Court of Justice of the European Union (General Court) – The Unified Court on Patents: The New Oxymoron of European Law. The article forms part of the Egmont Papers, published by the Egmont Institute.
I’m delighted to welcome Helen Smith today, a freelance translator based in Oxford, UK. She obtained a BA (Hons) in Modern Languages (French and Spanish) from the University of Oxford, and then worked for 5 years at a top 50 City of London law firm, where she trained and qualified as a solicitor. You can find out more about Helen from her website.
Helen kindly offered to report on the recent Oxford conference on the Unitary Patent for those of us who weren’t able to attend. Over to you Helen!
