This is an exciting and increasingly important area of law, particularly internationally and EU-wide. This subject offers the opportunity for students to explore intellectual property law in both the UK and EU contexts, together with the links to competition law and sport.

You will explore the internationally important area of Intellectual Property Law and learn how intellectual property rights impinge on many commercial areas.

LLM Intellectual Property Law will support you in gaining a high-level appreciation of the scope of intellectual property law and the principles and rationale which underpin the law. This is reinforced by developing awareness of a range of critiques which pertain to the sector, including those relating to the scope and applicability of the various rights. Based on this you will develop your appreciation through developing expertise in the application of these rights in key contexts, in particular the International and European Union approaches to intellectual property rights. In respect of the latter, the inherent tension between the creation of monopoly rights and the European Union’s single market regulations are explored.

You will explore important contemporary issues such as the control and exploitation of personal data, and the application of intellectual property law in the context of medical innovation.

Core modules include: Competition and IP Law in the EU; Intellectual Property; IP Public Health; Medical Innovation; and Data Protection and Privacy. You will also study two modules of your choice from other LLM subject areas.
