Updates to our L-, P- and D-books for EQE2020


In view of legal changes that only became known after our Questions and Answers books were published, which supersede and/or supplemente some of the legal references (OJ, case law) in our books, we provide three update documents on our website, for our books:


Each document comprises updates and corrections to the Introduction, the Study Guide (not in the P-book), Questions and Answers in the books in view of:

  • Publications in OJ EPO after the Book was printed (OJ July 2019 – 31 Oct 2019) - incl. the new ADA/AAD (in force since 1 October 2019);
  • Publications in PCT Newsletter after the Book was printed (PCT NL July 2019 – 31 Oct 2019);
  • New How to Get Guide (19th edition, issued 7 October 2019, updated to 1 April 2019);
  • Corrections to the questions and answers;
  • Answers to referrals G 1/18 and G 2/19 (not yet in OJ).

Note that the legal syllabus is defined as valid on 31 October 2019 (Rule 2 IPREE), on which the November 2018-edition of the Guidelines GL/EPO and GL/PCT-EPO was in force.

We thank all who provided any comments and all candidates who participated in our legal training courses, as well as those that gave feedback on our material via email, for useful feedback. Any further comments are highly appreciated.
