You will learn about the ways in which the intellectual property system (IP) has developed, and why it operates as it does. In so doing, you will develop skills that will enable you to think about the system in an analytical manner. You will also cover the practical aspects, such as registration procedures where appropriate.

 

The IP module will also enable you to critically analyse the legal and policy framework for intellectual property law and to consider the effectiveness of the regulatory system, for instance, considering whether the intellectual property system achieves its purported aims.

 

The module will facilitate lively debate concerning potential proposals for legal reform, for example, in relation to the tests of copyright infringement, and the application of the law to new areas.

 

The module will encourage you to pursue further study of the area, by looking at the application of the law to novel situations, and (subject to availability) by the involvement of practitioners during the module.
