This course aims at providing a basic level of knowledge of the EPC and PCT to candidates with a general knowledge of IPR. This course covers the legal and claim analysis topics needed for the Pre-Exam. We will give a complete legal overview, using our unique flow-charts. After each session the knowledge just learned will be tested by practicing questions, cases and exams questions. Furthermore, we will show candidates how to answer the questions in multiple-choice format. In between the sessions candidates are expected to study and to do homework (questions and cases). By the end of the course the candidates will be ready for the Pre-Exam.
