Summary

With this specialist LLM you will gain a detailed insight into the fast-growing field of Intellectual Property & Information Law. Expect interactive classes focusing on topical issues concerning the regulation of innovation and creativity, in which the issues of the day are explored in detail. Covering the latest practical and theoretical perspectives you will learn about the access to and use of data in a global context.

**Key benefits**
- A strong IP Law community, with both informal and formal social and networking events, guest lectures by leading scholars/practitioners in the field and participation in the annual International IP moot competition.

- Breadth and depth of teaching expertise; a reputed mix of dedicated full-time King's academics and internationally-acclaimed practitioners who all contribute to the extensive module offering.

- Combines rigorous analytical and critical approaches with practical perspectives and practice-generated problems.

**Course purpose**
For those who want to work in legal practice (in a variety of capacities - solicitor, advocate on in-house counsel) in the following sectors: the cultural and creative industries (music, film, art and publishing); 'brand' management for medium to large corporations; innovation industries, such as information and digital technology, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. Those from both EU and non-EU countries where the 'knowledge economy' is either developing or already rather crucial will be attracted to this pathway.

This programme allows you to deepen or to broaden your knowledge of law as an academic subject and assists your professional development by enhancing your problem-solving skills in a transnational context. Designed to maximise students' intellectual potential, it also keeps you grounded by drawing on the real world experiences of staff and other practitioners. The LLM offers a sharpened focus on our key areas of excellence and a commitment to offer a premier programme and a world class student experience. Aimed at recent law graduates (or graduates of joint degrees with a significant law content) as well as established legal professionals who may have graduated a number of years ago, the programme is rigorous and demanding and requires serious commitment.
