- Are you recently qualified, but terrified by the thought of handling oral proceedings on your own?
- Or perhaps you’re further on in your career, but still feel you lack experience and confidence when it comes to EPO hearings?
- Do you have trainees of your own, and worry about how to prepare them for this difficult aspect of the job?
Our course is in two parts. The first is a remote learning module, in the form of pre-recorded webinars and an accompanying printed training manual. This part can be completed any time within a two-month window, at the student’s convenience. The second part is a one-day workshop in London. The workshop includes two mock hearings, one before an “examining division” and one before an “opposition division”. All delegates will have the chance to participate actively in these hearings, and will receive coaching in case preparation and presentation.
This year we’re running two parallel courses, culminating in workshops on Monday 21 May 2018 and Monday 18 June 2018. You can select whichever date suits you better, subject to availability.
This course is now fully booked. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be put on the waiting list for next year's course.
