Course content

The Professional Certificate in Trade Mark Practice for the Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys was launched in September 2011. The Certificate, designed by Nottingham Law School in conjunction with ITMA, is focussed on the development of the knowledge base and professional skills required of the trade mark attorney in what is now a fragmented and volatile legal services market.

This one year part-time course is built around intensive study units, usually running from Wednesday to Saturday, allowing work to be completed at a time that is convenient to you.
