The LLM in Intellectual Property and Innovation at Swansea University aims to supplement the study of what IP Law is with what IP Law does in practice, giving you the knowledge and skills to pave the way to a range of exciting careers in this increasingly recognised field.
Our LLM is currently undergoing an exciting programme development to align it with innovation and IP at the nexus of interconnected global issues, in particular global health, climate change, and regulating disruptive technologies.
Capable of being studied full time over one year, or part time over two or three years, we offer a wide range of modules with the opportunity for you to learn from academics who are industry experts, with a wealth of academic and practical experience.
You will be required to take four modules* for the taught element of your degree from a list, which includes:
- IP, Law and Innovation
- E-Commerce and Electronic Payments
- International Commercial Arbitration
- International Corporate Law and Governance
- International Intellectual Property Law
- Ship and Other Mobile Assets Finance Law
*modules may be subject to change, please visit our website for current module listings.
Upon the completion of the taught element, you will undertake two research projects (up to 10,000 words each) elaborating upon chosen topics which have stimulated your interest under the taught element. On successful completion of the International Commercial Arbitration module, you will be exempt from the level 2 requirements of Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) membership, so you can apply for the level of Member of the Institute (MCIArb).
Enhancing students’ employability is a key priority for us, and we organise a range of events to help, including the annual LLM careers fair, which gives students the opportunity to meet local and international law firms, as well as networking events and visits to leading practices in the City of London. Graduates of our LLM in Intellectual Property and Innovation are well-positioned for stimulating and rewarding career opportunities.
