Intellectual property law is a central part of an innovative and creative economy; it has now become central to government and international policy. There is a need for expertise in the field for lawyers, policy makers and others involved with developing a knowledge economy.
The LLM Intellectual Property Law aims to meet the needs of students, lawyers, policy makers and others who wish to study intellectual property law from an international and comparative perspective.
This programme provides an overview of current issues in specific areas of intellectual property law, both domestic, EU and international, with a critical evaluation of current and proposed regulation.
The LLM Intellectual Property Law programme:
- Provides you with a general appreciation of current issues in specific areas of intellectual property law, domestic, EU and international
- Stimulates a critical approach to evaluation of current and proposed regulation and cultivates independent and original thought
- Enables you to undertake in-depth research and demonstrate advanced knowledge in specific areas of law.
The LLM Intellectual Property Law programme is very flexible and offers a wide range of modules providing you with the ability to customise the programme to meet your own professional and/or employment needs or interests.

A law degree doesn’t restrict graduates to careers within the legal profession and law graduates enter professions as diverse as finance, sales and marketing, digital communications and recruitment.
We are committed to extending extracurricular opportunities to our students, helping to enhance their CVs in a competitive graduate job market. We work in partnership with lawyers, charities and voluntary organisations to give students the opportunity to practise and extend their skills and we run several Pro Bono schemes and provide advice to members of the community on different legal issues.
Students successfully completing the LLM programme may have the opportunity to continue their legal study through the School’s PhD programme or through the Centre for Professional Legal Studies professional programmes (the Legal Practice Course or Bar Professional Training Course).
