The Training Programme on European Patent Law and Practice is an intensive two-part course for candidates who are preparing for the main papers (A, B, C and D) of the European Qualifying Examination (EQE).The Training Programme reflects the practical nature of the examinations, with an emphasis on studying past papers of the EQE. In addition to receiving intensive training from experienced tutors, participants hear from successful previous candidates about their recent experience of the examinations. To derive maximum benefit from the Training Programme, participants are asked to study various materials in advance, for discussion during the face-to-face sessions.

Programme StructureThe Training Programme comprises two parts. The course, which begins in November, introduces candidates to the EQE papers, while the dates in January serve to consolidate and build on the knowledge and skills acquired.

The first part of the programme (2 full days in November) comprises


1 full-day session covering Papers A and B

1 half-day session covering Paper C

1 half-day session covering Paper D


The second part of the programme (3 full days in January) comprises


1 three-quarters-day session covering Papers A and B

1 full-day session covering Paper C

1 full-day session covering Paper D


 

The programme is scheduled to take place a few months before the upcoming examinations when candidates would be advanced in their own studies. It cannot replace individual preparation, but it can substantially aid and assist in identifying and addressing knowledge and skills gaps. 

TutorsAll tutors for this course are highly experienced European Patent Attorneys. They deal with the EPO on a daily basis and train professionals within their own firms. They are experienced tutors on the EQE. 

Papers A and B are tutored by Dr Charles Harding (D. Young & Co.) and Gareth Fennell (Kilburn & Strode).

Paper C is jointly tutored by Dr Gordon Wright (Visiting Professor, Queen Mary University of London) and Dr Rob O’Callaghan (Elkington & Fife, Sevenoaks)

Paper D is jointly tutored by Margaret Mackett (Gevers Patents) and Christopher Revell (FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies UK Limited).


The programme’s Academic Director is Dr Noam Shemtov, Reader in IP and Technology Law at Queen Mary University of London.
