LLM in Intellectual Property Law
This programme is designed to equip you with an advanced knowledge and understanding of intellectual property law within an international, European and domestic (UK) setting.
The core subjects of the programme cover 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 programme spans patents, copyright, trade marks, designs, database rights, breach of confidence, passing off and sui generis rights, as well as investigating a range of issues which underpin contemporary intellectual property law and policy.
The ever-increasing role and impact of Intellectual Property law and policy makes specialised knowledge of this subject a valuable asset for those:
- intending to enter legal practice and specialise in intellectual property law;
- seeking to work in areas such as the creative industries, cultural industries, manufacturing industries, pharmaceuticals, life sciences, computing, information and communication technologies, etc. with a focus on intellectual property;
- intending to take up a policymaking role in relation to knowledge-intensive sectors;
- looking to undertake further postgraduate study in the area of intellectual property law or pursue a research or academic career.
The programme can be taken full-time over 12 months, or part-time over 24 months (due to current UKBA regulations, part-time study is only available for UK or EU citizens).
