Training for the EQE Pre-Examination
In November 2017, Nyske Blokhuis (EP&C) together with Natasja Duhayon (IMEC) provide training for candidates preparing for the Claim Analysis part of the Pre-Examination of the European Qualifying Examination at the University of Maastricht (NL).
See maastrichtuniversity.nl/eqe-pre-exam-training for more information about this training.
Passing the Pre-Exam is your ticket to participating in the EQE. In the Pre-Exam, you have to show that you have legal knowledge of the framework of European patent law and that you have sufficient experience in reading, interpreting and analyzing patent claims.
The Pre-Exam training programme is designed to increase the knowledge and skills of candidates who already have a basic understanding of European patent law, to the level required for passing the Exam. The course is designed using state of the art teaching methodologies enabling you to score an optimal amount of points at the Pre-Exam.
The training involves a 2-day workshop, offered in the historical centre of Maastricht. The aim of the course is to familiarize yourself with the methodology for tackling the claim-analysis part of the Pre-Exam and help you to build your confidence to pass the Pre-Exam.
To further deepen your knowledge and skills after the 2-day workshop, you will be given access to the Electronic Learning Environment of Maastricht University all the way to the date of the EQE. Via this portal, you will receive online instruction to further practice your skills. In addition, there are opportunities to interact online with fellow students and the teachers.
The EQE-training is given by Nyske Blokhuis and Natasja Duhayon. Both are European patent attorneys and renowned tutors.
The book A Self-Study Guide for the Pre-Examination of the EQE - Part I: The Legal Questions is used during the training course for the Claim Analysis part of the EQE Pre-Exam at Maastricht University.
The EQE-training is associated with the Advanced Masters Intellectual Property Law and Knowledge Management (LL.M/MSc) given at Maastricht University.
The IPKM is accredited by the Examination Board of the European Patent Office, resulting in a six-month remission of the period of professional training for the European Qualifying Examination.
