Smart in C: A simple and efficient methodology for EQE paper C

Nyske Blokhuis, Cees Mulder

Research output: Book/ReportBookProfessional


The idea for this book evolved from a series of courses given at Maastricht University preparing for the EQE. For most Exam papers it is required to learn the necessary legal background and the substantive issues related to the subject of the paper. However, it also has to be learned how to answer the paper, i.e., how to formulate the answer in order to score marks. In particular, this applies to the opposition exam: the manner in which the paper has to be answered deviates in certain aspects from the daily practice of a European patent attorney. For the courses preparing for EQE paper C in Maastricht, an entirely new methodology was developed which is simple, elegant and efficient. Only one simple table is employed and the analysis is set up in such a way that no information that is relevant for answering the exam paper is lost along the way.
