68210| Ulster University| Copyright and the Information Society|

This course explores community planning from different perspectives to examine the expectations and qualities of contemporary community planning in terms of integrated service provision. It discusses the evolving concept of community planning in the context of people and place, enabling a richer understanding of communities of place, interest, identity and politics, for creating resilient service delivery and sustainable communities. It provides a platform to debate the interplay between community planning, regeneration and spatial (land use) planning to develop and implement a shared vision that will improve wellbeing and inform spatial change.

The course will in particular consider:

  • The challenges represented by a diverse range of stakeholders involved in community planning.
  • The effective, integrated and transparent delivery of local services for people and places.
  • How community empowerment and social cohesion relate to community planning.
  • The role of people and communities in the planning, development and regeneration process that contribute to the building of resilient communities and places.
  • Key socio-spatial issues related to community planning and how these relate to land use planning.


In recent times, there has been a greater emphasis on providing services that meet community needs by actively involving communities in shaping the nature of the services and infrastructure in specific localities. The rationale for this course is to provide participants with an understanding of the evolving concept of community planning for creating resilient service delivery and sustainable communities. As part of an extensive Review of Public Administration, Northern Ireland will be the last of the devolved nations to introduce some form of community planning. Notably, community planning provides a framework within which Councils, departments, statutory bodies and other relevant agencies and sectors can work together to develop and implement a shared vision. Community planning represents the most recent expression of policy and institutional arrangements to secure the effective, integrated and transparent delivery of local services alongside a sense of wellbeing for people in defined places.

Entry Requirements: Any undergraduate degree

Start Date: 23 September 2015

68156| Queen Mary, University of London| EQE Training Programme on European Patent Law and Practice|

The Training Programme on European Patent Law and Practice is an intensive two-part course for candidates who are preparing for the main papers (A, B, C and D) of the European Qualifying Examination (EQE).

The Training Programme reflects the practical nature of the examinations, with an emphasis on studying past papers of the EQE. In addition to receiving intensive training from experienced tutors, participants hear from successful previous candidates about their recent experience of the examinations. To derive maximum benefit from the Training Programme, participants are asked to study various materials in advance, for discussion during the face-to-face sessions.

Why take QMUL’s EQE Training Programme?

Whilst a preparatory course is not mandatory for EQE candidates, it can be very helpful mechanism to support and assist with candidates’ individual learning needs. With this in mind, the QMUL EQE Training Programme offers participants the chance to study, and discuss in-depth, previous years’ papers in a study group environment with learning facilitated by experienced tutors. The QMUL EQE Training Programme is specifically designed to assist candidates in this learning process by focusing on the approach that the examiners will look for, and how best to structure answers with those priorities in mind. Working in small groups increases interactivity and further facilitates learning during the training sessions. 

Queen Mary University of London has been successfully running this EQE Training Programme for nearly thirty years. The course structure and content are continuously updated to reflect the changing requirements of the examination and the profession.

Programme Structure

The Training Programme comprises two parts. Part 1 introduces candidates to the EQE papers, while Part 2 serves to consolidate and build on the knowledge and skills acquired during Part 1. It is possible to attend only Part 2 of the Programme; however, it is strongly recommended that candidates also attend Part 1.

The first part of the programme (2 full days in November) comprises

  • 1 full-day session covering Papers A and B
  • 1 half-day session covering Paper C
  • 1 half-day session covering Paper D

The second part of the programme (3 full days in January) comprises

  • 1 three-quarters-day session covering Papers A and B
  • 1 full-day session covering Paper C
  • 1 full-day session covering Paper D

The programme is scheduled to take place a few months before the upcoming examinations when candidates would be advanced in their own studies. It cannot replace individual preparation, but it can substantially aid and assist in identifying and addressing knowledge and skills gaps. The division into two parts is done in order to support candidates in their preparation and give them the opportunity to follow up on open issues at a later time, rather than having the entire programme delivered in one week-long session.

Tutors

All tutors for this course are highly experienced European Patent Attorneys. They deal with the EPO on a daily basis and train professionals within their own firms. Our tutors have taught this course at QMUL since at least 2011, but have had prior teaching experience outside QMUL. 

Papers A and B are tutored by Dr Charles Harding (D. Young & Co., Southampton – chemistry) and Gareth Fennell (Kilburn & Strode, London – mechanical).

Paper C is jointly tutored by Richard Bassett (Potter Clarkson, Nottingham) and Dr Gordon Wright (Elkington & Fife).

Paper D is jointly tutored by Margaret Mackett (Gevers Patents) and Christopher Revell (FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies UK Limited).

The programme's Academic Advisor is Professor Duncan Matthews, Chair in Intellectual Property Law at Queen Mary University of London.

About the EQE

To qualify as a European patent attorney it is necessary to pass the European Qualifying Examination (EQE) administered by the European Patent Office (EPO). This examination, which serves to establish whether candidates have the requisite aptitude and knowledge to represent applicants before the European Patent Office (EPO), has a pass rate of less than 50% and consists of four papers sat under exam conditions ranging from three to six hours per paper.

The papers include three practical papers and a legal exam:

  • Drafting of patent specifications – paper A
  • Amendment of patent specifications – paper B
  • Opposing granted patents – paper C
  • European patent law – paper D

Cost

Costs vary from £500 - £1,900 per person, depending on how many papers are studied on how many days. Please visit our website for details.

68155| Queen Mary, University of London| Banking Law Symposium 2015: 'Multinational Banking: Capturing the Benefits and Avoiding the Pitfalls'|

The Centre for Commercial Law Studies is proud to host the 2015 Banking Law Symposium.

Banks have increased in size and complexity and, as a result, they have become global institutions challenging the reach of national regulators. What have we learned from the Great Financial Crisis? What steps are policymakers taking to avoid similar events in the future? Has the risk culture of banking changed so dramatically that the tools regulators have been using have become too outdated? Are the courts taking a more direct role? Financial penalties and fines, are they taking too high a toll on regulated entities?

The 2015 Banking Law Symposium (BLS) will address the evolution and the balance between regulation and supervision of the financial sector in the post-crisis period. Specific areas to be addressed include the linkages between macro- and micro-prudential supervision, corporate governance, the role of deposit insurers in bank resolutions, capital adequacy and liquidity ratios, and shadow banking.

Since its inception, the goal of the BLS has been to foster a dialogue on important public policy issues affecting the financial services industry. Its programmes highlight a topical theme and bring together well-known academics, policymakers and practitioners.

The conference takes place in cental London on 9 September (half-day + dinner at The Honourable Society of Lincoln's Inn) and 10 September (full day).

Fees

  • Early-bird special (conference and dinner) bookable until 30 June 2015 - £235
