With rapid technological advancements and ever increasing legal developments, this programme will enable you to stay ahead of the crowd, whether you wish to progress as an e-commerce entrepreneur, patent attorney, trademark specialist or the chief legal officer of a company.
The Master Programme in Intellectual Property Law has a general objective of providing a deep understanding of major issues covering international and EU intellectual property law, and in particular copyright, patents, designs and trademarks. This is an area that has grown both in importance and complexity as reflected in the increased focus on intellectual property protection and its value as a corporate asset. On top of that, over the years IP law has become increasingly interdisciplinary having key interfaces with market, competition, contract and tort law.
This programme is designed for those of you who wish to deepen your understanding of intellectual property law, whether you are qualified, practicing lawyers who wish to improve your knowledge of this area of law, students who wish to proceed into post-graduate education to further your specialisation, or persons who work in areas influenced by IP law and are interested in the area.
