'Quo vadis, SPC?', the update seminar in which Dr Christopher Brückner, the author of the SPC commentary noted here (participants will receive the second edition on top of course documentation), will speak on the CJEU's referrals from 2011 to 2016 and on how to understand the decisions and which practical consequences we may expect for the future.  Date: 31 May 2016; venue: Basel.

More information is available here.  SPC Blog readers are entitled to a 10% discount against the registration fee (CHF 1,160 down from CHF 1,290).
