German patent attorneys are organized into a public statutory body, having as its mission the ongoing development of the profession and of commercial rights protection: the "Patentanwaltskammer" (chartered institute of patent attorneys).
One of many important tasks carried out by the Patentanwaltskammer is to organize education for patent attorney assistants (for high-level IP support), who provide essential backup for patent attorneys. The two-stranded training is completed over two, or a maximum of three years, both in-house with the patent attorney as well as at the professional training college. Dedicated courses providing this training have been set up in Bremen und Munich. Custom-made lessons are in Düsseldorf, Stuttgart, Frankfurt and Berlin.
During a recent visit to Spain, the former Arbeitsministerin (German federal minister for employment) Ursula von der Leyen presented this two-stranded training model as being unique in Europe.
