I am very satisfied with the entire course. Content was interesting and very well explained by the speakers, who are excellent. Each of them animated their course with such a professionalism and enthusiasm that I was surprised when it was time for a break! Being able to talk with them afterwards and to have your suggestions taken into account is very valuable.

Ana Druzinec, Senior Patent and Trademark Paralegal, PETOSEVIC, Sep 19

I felt the speakers were very good, helpful and answered any questions we had. I really enjoyed the session regarding US law as this isn't usually covered in other conferences.

Rebecca Wheeler, Senior Paralegal, Murgitroyd & Company Limited, Sep 19

The content addressed the main topics on patent proceedings and the speakers were very experienced and gave a good practical approach on the topics.

Melissa Medina, Patent Assistant, Bavarian Nordic AS, Sep 19

I really like that the course is specifically designed for senior patent paralegals who are are looking for courses that focus on updates, rather than general courses that explain patent proceedings to 'newcomers'.
