The Informals’ Handbook for Trainee Patent Attorneys 2016-17, is available to download here.
This is a fantastic guide comprising:
- introductions to CIPA, the Informals, IPReg, PEB and EPI;
- an overview the UK and European examination systems (and the key differences between them);
- an outline of the qualification process; and
- lists of useful resources for day-to-day work and for examination preparation.
Please bring the Handbook to the attention of any new starters in your firm. We strongly recommend the guide as a starting point for new trainees, to help make sense of the profession and to understand how the Informals and CIPA can help them. We also hope that trainers will find this handbook useful.
Further, please recommend signing up to the Yellow Sheet blog to any new starters in your firm!
