Advanced Master in Intellectual Property Law and Knowledge Management (LLM/MSc)
Intellectual Property Law and Knowledge Management is an advanced master's for lawyers, non-lawyers, and those with a degree in science of technology.
With the advent of globalisation and new media, there has been a flood of new information and technological innovation. The natural consequence has been an unprecedented number of legal questions about intellectual property, patent rights and industrial technology in an increasingly internationalised world.
To meet this demand, the Faculty of Law launched the complementary master’s programmes in Intellectual Property Law and Knowledge Management in September 2009.
You will learn from resident and non-resident experts coming from:
- private legal practice;
- the judiciary;
- patent agencies;
- international and European organisations; and
- entrepreneurship, IP management and valorisation practice.
The advanced master's programmes Intellectual Property Law and Knowledge Management are taught in English and are offered as a one-year, full time master’s or as a two-year, half time master’s that allows you to continue working while you study.
By special arrangement it is also possible to follow a number of courses as a contract student.
