Masters degrees in Property Law offer advanced study of the legal regulations which govern the various forms of ownership and tenancy in real (immovable) property and personal (movable) property.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Intellectual Property Law, and Technology and Communications Law. Entry requirements usually include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate Law subject.
Courses in this field offer broad training in the techniques for understanding and administering the laws which regulate the ownership and trade of personal and real property in private, public, and commercial contexts.
There are opportunities for you to specialise your studies towards a specific career on most courses. For example, you may specialise in Intellectual Property (IP) including advocacy of trademarks, copyright and patents, and dealing with industrial design rights. Or, you might focus on real estate, and examine the regulation of rented or privately owned properties, from urban housing to retail estates.
Careers may include consultancy for businesses and organisations across a range of industries, as well as legal representation and the management of public affairs for individuals and corporations.
