Intellectual Property Law is an interdisciplinary field. This MSc explores the foundations of intellectual property law with relation to patents, trade marks, designs, copyright and more under domestic law as well as under international and European laws.

The core modules cover the basic elements of each of the most relevant IP rights (patents, trade marks, designs, copyright), such as how rights are obtained, how they are infringed, defended and/or licensed. You will acquire knowledge with regard to preconditions for protection, the scope of exclusive rights, and specific exceptions and defences to infringement. Each module will also introduce you to the international and European legal framework governing specific rights, for example as regards international conventions (such as the European Patent Convention) or EU trade mark and design rights. In addition, the programme features a unique module introducing you to the IP system in the United States.

You will acquire practical insight into the commercial aspects and day-to-day business of being a patent and trade mark attorney or litigator, while developing a strong understanding of the academic knowledge needed to apply the law.

You’ll gain an advanced and in-depth knowledge of intellectual property law and management with regard to all aspects of business and legal practice.
