Training for the EQE
Training in European patent law
Many national bodies (universities, institutes, professional associations)
run courses in European patent law.
The Centre d’Etudes Internationales de la Propriété
and the epi jointly
organise basic training in European patent law in a number of European
cities. This training course provides a broad grounding and is geared
to those who deal with matters relating to European patent law, as well
as those who plan to sit the examination. The training course is attended
alongside normal professional activity.
For information about these training opportunities, it is best to contact
the bodies concerned directly. See helpdesk and
Specific preparation for the EQE
Theoretical and practical training should be supplemented by intensive
preparation for the EQE. The epi and CEIPI are active in this field too.
They assist future candidates by annually organising a special preparatory
course for the EQE in the form of a tutorial or seminar.
Candidates can also prepare by referring to the papers set in previous
examinations, the Compendium.
