LLM Masters of Laws: Intellectual Property Law


The LLM in Intellectual Property allows students to study in depth the substantive areas of law which make up intellectual property such as competition law, copyright, trade mark law, patents and consumer protection.

Much of the law is derived from EU measures, and the modules are taught from both a domestic and EU perspective.

Students wishing to specialise in an area of law by following one of our dedicated pathways will also benefit from having that pathway named on your degree certificate, highlighting the specialist knowledge and experience you have in this field.

Students wishing to obtain a specialised LLM must complete three 30-credit modules in your chosen specialism, and must write a dissertation worth 60 credits in that subject area.

Modules in this specialism are regularly updated to remain topical and may include:

LAWM640 Dissertation 60
LAWM087 Competition Law 30
LAWM089 Consumer Protection 30
LAWM075 Copyright Law 30
LAWM101 Patent and Design Law 30
LAWM044 Trademarks 30

The remaining 30 credits can be taken from our full list of modules.
