This new publication is an advance version of the thematic overview of the case law of the Boards of Appeal in 2020 that will be issued later in the year as the annual "Case Law" Supplement of the EPO Official Journal. To allow early availability, the present publication (available only as a pdf) contains the decision summaries in the language of the proceedings only. The summaries will be published again, together with their translations into the other two official languages of the EPO, in the aforementioned trilingual "Case Law" Supplement. The full texts of all decisions referred to can be accessed on the Boards of Appeal web page.
