[in-Person] EU Intellectual Property Law (9-10 November 2023)
This module is conducted in-person at the Assas International School (Singapore). Participants outside Singapore may choose to attend this module via Zoom
The first part of the module will be dedicated to the understanding of the EU IP system.
The Treaty of Rome did not transfer competences between the Member States and the EU with regard to Intellectual Property (IP). However, the EU exercised them through harmonisation of trademarks, patents and designs laws, and thereafter by way of unification of those laws with the creation of Community/unitary industrial property rights. The competences granted to the EU of IP has not brought an end to the coexistence of Community rights and national rights.
The second part focuses on the new IP legislation on “copyright and related rights in the Digital Single Market” that governs digital and IT proprietary rights, which provides for rules to adapt certain exceptions and limitations to copyright and related rights to digital and cross-border environments. Specifically, the module will cover aspects of the new legislation that:
[Video on Demand] The Civil Law System and the Law of Obligations
Although the Law of the European Union has its own autonomous logic, it applies in countries that share an important common trait: they all belong to what has come to be known as the “Civil Law system”. Understanding the underpinnings of the Civil Law system is useful to understand how European lawyers think and talk about the law: although they do not speak the same spoken language, they do share, to a varying degree, a common law language that they all inherited from the Roman civilisation and that is almost completely foreign to the language of the Common Law.
This module will first look at the major differences between the two legal systems from a historical perspective. The second part will introduce what is called in the Civil Law world the “Law of Obligations”, with a special reference to the basics of Contract Law within the context of the Civil Law system.
[Video on Demand] The EU Bloc, EU Law Decision-Making Structures and Policy Law-Making Processes
The European Union is one of the most powerful organisations in the world. Its roots can be found in the historical and economic heritage of its Member States, which had made it possible to build an economic and political union that had developed its own institutional, legal and economic system without becoming a Federal State. The purpose of the module is to better understand what the EU is. It focuses on the historical developments that led to the European Coal and Steel Community in 1952 and the events that led to the building of an integrated Union in 2007. It also provides details on the institutions of the EU, their role, composition and functions, for a better grasp of the workings of the EU in general. The module also covers the developments on the legal system of the EU, introducing the various legal instruments. Finally, it provides an overview of the functioning of the internal market as an area of economic freedom, as well as the basis for the adoption of sectoral rules governing all economic areas which are of interest to the EU.
This module is for legal practitioners wanting in-depth knowledge of the rules of EU law relevant to their field of practice, by providing them with the keys to understanding the functioning of the EU.
