This course offers a detailed insight into law, management and policy relating to patents, copyright, trademarks, and other intellectual property rights.

Providing both international and comparative perspectives, you’ll cover traditional intellectual property issues such as industrial property, artistic works and brands, and also emerging areas of policy including the digital economy and biotechnology.

The course reflects the growing importance of international developments in intellectual property and confronts growing controversies. These include the relationships between intellectual property and human rights norms, access to knowledge, new technologies and economic development.

Throughout the course we’ll encourage you to:

-explore the international norms and institutions relating to intellectual property such as the World Trade Organisation’s TRIPS Agreement

-consider the wider social and economic implications of intellectual property for health, culture, education, technology, innovation, and economic development
