Here at Mathys & Squire training begins from day one and you will soon be attending client meetings and involved in work on live cases.
All trainees are sent on the Queen Mary course approximately a year after starting and this involves effectively 4 months of becoming a full-time student again, allowing you to focus on studying the material without the distractions of work and giving you an insight into all aspects of IP law. It also exempts you from having to take the UK Foundation Exams.
After the Queen Mary course, the firm runs a series of in-house tutorials helping trainees prepare for the UK Finals Exams and the European Qualifying Examinations (EQEs). Trainees are also sent on the Queen Mary EQE course in preparation for the EQEs.
Support continues throughout training and beyond and we hold monthly practice-group meetings, where we update each other on the latest case law developments in our practice areas.
