Student Patent Attorneys

19 May 2020

For students revising for exams that have been cancelled for 12 months, lockdown has delayed a vital stage of their professional development.

Co-hosts Lee Davies and Gwilym Roberts speak with three student patent attorneys: Carolyn Palmer of Schlich who is Honorary Secretary of the CIPA Informals (an informal association of all trainees and a committee of CIPA); Kevin Rich of Potter Clarkson and Joel Briscoe of HGF. They discuss the frustrations of having a year added to their training and call on the Patent Examination Board to introduce online examinations, in line with many other legal professions. We also learn that Lee’s tortoise, Albert Treacle, is trying to mate with an old pair of Crocs™.
