EPLIT consults on dress code for UPC representatives


The patent attorney organisation, EPLIT (European Patent Litigators Association), has posted here a short survey asking members whether representatives before the Unified Patent Court (UPC) should wear uniform robes (and the reason for the answer) and, if so, what colour.  As EPLIT explains, the draft Proposal for a Code of Conduct for the UPC states: “Finally, we note that once decided for the judges, some provision on the dress code for Representatives should be added to avoid possible discrimination”, and EPLIT reports that a blue robe has been proposed as a dress code for UPC judges.
