Purpose

To properly understand all these issues, it is necessary to study both the legislation and the case law relating to a particular discipline on an advanced level. In the modern business world, it has become impossible to properly deal with commercial transactions without the necessary IP background. This LLM aims to provide the student with the necessary tools to navigate the IP landscape, and to create awareness of pitfalls or opportunities that may present themselves. In fact, in given situations, the holder of an advanced degree in IP might be preferred for a specific task over someone that does not have such a qualification.

Career Opportunities

An IP LLM could lead to a career as an advocate, attorney, a legal adviser in government or in the private sector, a position in a regulatory environment or a position in an international agency.
