Programme structure

To be awarded LLM Intellectual Property Law you must successfully complete six courses, four of which must be IP law courses, and a 10,000-word dissertation during your chosen duration of study.

During your studies you will also have the opportunity to study up to two courses from different subject areas such as information technology law, medical law or international commercial law.
