Using the Small Claims Court
THE NUJ is organising a one-day training course for members on taking copyright claims to the Patents County Court (PCC) Small Claims Track.
It will take place on Thursday 28 February at Headland House from 10:00 and is all day.
The course will be tutored by Isabel Jamal, an IP Barrister from 8 New Square Chambers, who specialises in all areas of IP law and contractual disputes and media and entertainment, and Kate Fox, Solicitor at Thompsons, the Union' s solicitors.
It will run through the preparatory work, setting out the claim, issuing proceedings, court procedure, and the trial hearing itself.
It's for members who want to take claims to the PCC small claims track, and also activists who may be interested in supporting others.
There is a charge of £10 for members to cover refreshments and course material and numbers are limited, so it will be first come first served: book via firstname.lastname@example.org.
