Intellectual property has a central role in the enhancement of creativity, innovation and commercial growth in the modern economy.
The LLM Intellectual Property Law and Management is designed to respond to the emergent demand for professionals who have studied intellectual property law to a high level. This course is relevant to those graduates wishing to acquire an advanced knowledge of legal and business aspects of intellectual property in a commercial context.
This course is unique in that it offers a multi-disciplinary comprehensive overview of core issues of intellectual property law and management. You can take some core and optional modules at the Law School as well as the ICMA Centre, Henley Business School and Arts and Communication Design, providing an invaluable opportunity to develop an interdisciplinary perspective of intellectual property transactions.

What career can you have?
Graduates from our courses have gone on to work in various capacities, in major national and international law firms, as in-house lawyers, in international organizations in UK and abroad. While many law graduates take professional exams in law and go on to practise law either in the UK or abroad, many others pursue alternative careers. A postgraduate law degree will open many doors not only in specialised areas of employment, such as law firms, European and intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations, but also in academia (with further postgraduate study), creative organisations, the media (journalism and broadcasting), the entertainment industry, the civil service, and other branches of public service.
