Course content

This programme is designed to equip you with an advanced knowledge and understanding of intellectual property law and policy within an international, European and domestic (UK) setting.

It will facilitate learning of both substantive intellectual property law, and the place and role of intellectual property, not just in its legal context but also in its social, ethical, cultural and commercial contexts.

The compulsory courses will cover substantive law on all major intellectual property rights including patents, copyright, trade marks, designs and common law protection of intellectual property rights. Courses also provide a broad range of perspectives on intellectual property law, practice and policy.
