The Law Society Of Ireland – Diploma Centre is offering a Certificate in Trade Mark Law.

This programme gives participants an insight into the law and practice of trade marks. It provides a practical approach to trade mark law that equips participants with the necessary skills to deal with issues that arise in practice. Regulation 2015/2424 (the CTM Regulation) came into force in March 2016 and represents a substantive change to the EU trade mark regime. This legislation will be examined in detail, with the practical impact of the changes explored throughout each module of the course.

The course focuses on the legal principles and practical procedures for registering a trade mark at the Irish Patents Office, the European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), and the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO), as well as how to deal with objections and oppositions. In addition, we examine the process of managing a trade mark portfolio and dealing with revocation, invalidity, and recordals.

The course also provides a detailed analysis of applicable procedures for enforcement of trade mark rights, infringement, and passing-off, together with an examination of applicable defences. Finally, a module on advanced trade marks will guide students through the topical areas of online infringement, web-blocking orders, domain name infringement, and plain packaging legislation. It also covers the topic of design law as this is now examined on the Registered Trade mark Agent exam offered by the Irish Patents Office.

This course is suitable for the following:

  • Solicitors, barristers, and trainees who are working in the area of intellectual property or aspire to work in the area,
  • Professionals working in intellectual property firms and to those managing intellectual property portfolios in industry,
  • Sole traders and entrepreneurs.

The programme may also be of interest to those preparing for the Irish trade mark agent exam, which is offered by the Irish Patents Office. The Irish trade mark agent exam is set by the Irish Patents Office, and there is a separate fee payable to the Irish Patents Office in order to sit that exam.
