In this interactive workshop session, a case involving many aspects of trade mark law in Europe will be arbitrated and debated in small groups. Delegates will be given the opportunity to consider a number of issues related to trademark infringement and how those issues should be presented at mediation. Provided with the facts in advance, delegates will be split into small groups and will be asked to prepare an argument on behalf of each party to the mediation. They will be given an opportunity to present this case as well as to reply. In order to benefit from the session, delegates are advised to read and consider the paperwork which will be provided in advance.
