This comprehensive book examines the judicial governance of the patent system in Europe and beyond, and looks at mechanisms for enhancing coherence. Federica Baldan investigates the challenges to judicial coherence which may arise after the establishment of a specialised patent court in Europe.

The book highlights the various options that have been explored in the past decades for the creation of a centralised and specialised European patent court. Chapters retrace the most developed proposals for the establishment of a patent court, assess their impact on judicial coherence, and identify potential weaknesses and room for improvement. The UPC Agreement has a central role in this analysis as it is the most advanced proposal and is currently in its implementation phase.

Providing a comparative analysis of the US and Japanese patent systems and identifying the potential for improvements, this timely book will be a valuable resource for scholars, students and policy makers in the fields of IP law, governance and political science.
