Course summary

Course Summary

Intellectual property is an exciting and increasingly important area of law, particularly internationally and EU-wide. On this course you'll have opportunities to explore intellectual property law in both UK and EU contexts, together with the links to competition law and sport. You will explore the internationally important area of Intellectual Property Law and learn how intellectual property rights impinge on many commercial areas. The LLM Intellectual Property Law offers the opportunity to gain significant insight into the legal frameworks and principles underpinning this burgeoning sector. LLM Intellectual Property Law will support you in gaining a high-level appreciation of the scope of intellectual property law and the principles and rationale which underpin the law. This is reinforced by developing awareness of a range of critiques which pertain to the sector, including those relating to the scope and applicability of the various rights. Based on this you will develop your appreciation through developing expertise in the application of these rights in key contexts, in particular the International and European Union approaches to intellectual property rights. In respect of the latter, the inherent tension between the creation of monopoly rights and the European Union’s single market regulations are explored.
