Introductory methodology courses


These introductory methodology courses are intended principally - but not exclusively - for candidates who have taken CEIPI's European patent law training course.

In these courses an introduction is given to the methodologies for solving papers A (drafting of claims and an introduction), B (preparing a reply to an official letter), C (opposition) and D (legal questions) respectively. Moreover, the examination requirements are explained and a review of important topics is given.

The courses aim to set the candidates as early as possible "on the track" for preparing for the EQE (main examination) 2021 and bringing them to the required level for the CEIPI preparatory seminars to be held in October and November 2020.

The methodology courses take place in September 2020 according to the following schedule:

  • in Paris for English-, French- and German-speaking candidates

    A + B: September 18, 2020
    C: September 19, 2020
    D: September 16 (afternoon) and 17, 2020


Applications to CEIPI will be treated on a first come, first served basis. If the courses are oversubscribed, names will be put on a waiting list.

The deadline for enrolment has been extended to 21 August 2020.
