This part-time course is designed to give a detailed overview of substantive IP law and aims to improve your employability, particularly if you intend on working in IP intensive industries in a variety of legal and managerial roles.
The course is accredited by the statutory regulator, the Intellectual Property Regulation Board (IPReg) and provides full exemption from the CIPA/CITMA Joint Education Board foundation papers. For many students, it is the first step to professional qualification.
Many of our students hold degrees in a science or technology subject. If you don’t have prior legal knowledge, you will be supported by a range of online activities relating to foundational principles of law, such as the English legal system, contract law and tort.
More than half of our students are sponsored by their employers and the course is delivered over three long weekends (from Thursday afternoon to Saturday) with online study over five months.
