This course will grant you a great foundation in IP law, procedure and Policy.
IP law is involved in every major decision in the world. Today, it is fundamental to the success of our economy. In fact, one can scarcely pick up a newspaper these days without reading an article about intellectual property disputes. The fact is that protecting intellectual property is extremely important to most businesses. In fact, this growth in intellectual property related legal work has been so profound that courts are often at a loss as to how to deal with many of the issues. It is more imperative more than ever, to seek a career change in IP. Engineers, lawyers, scientists, researchers and artists are all in need of understanding and benefiting from this practice.
The programme aims to provide you with an advanced knowledge of substantive intellectual property law, and of the place and role of intellectual property within domestic, regional and international contexts. This programme enables you to develop a fully rounded understanding of intellectual property rights, their role in society and the impact of intellectual property (IP) on global economics and development.
