Что я буду изучать?

Globalisation, rapid technological development and new media have contributed to a flood of new information and technological innovation, opening up a host of legal questions about intellectual property, patent rights and industrial technology. The Advanced Master’s in Intellectual Property Law and Knowledge Management (IPKM) offers a unique curriculum at the interface of intellectual property law, technology and intellectual property management. It is a selective, small-scale programme for lawyers, technology transfer officers and graduates with a science or technical degree. You can follow the programme on a full-time or part-time basis, so you can combine studying with work.

The IPKM programme combines core mandatory courses with opportunities for students in each degree track (LLM and MSc) to develop a more specialised professional profile. In the mandatory courses, you will learn the fundamentals of the law regarding knowledge valorisation and the protection of intellectual property. You will also receive in-depth instruction on the workings of the European and American systems of intellectual property protection and will cover the form and function of international organisations, such as:

  • World Intellectual Property Organisation
  • World Trade Organisation
  • European Patent Office
  • EU Intellectual Property Office
  • Unified Patent Court

The MSc track is for graduates with a scientific or technical qualification (e.g. in biology, chemistry, electronics, engineering, pharmacology or physics). You will focus on developing the professional skills needed to be a practising patents attorney as well as the skills needed to qualify as a European patent agent. The MSc is one of the few academic master’s programmes that enables qualifying participants to obtain a reduction of six months in the professional training period required for the European Qualifying Exam (EQE) of the European Patent Office.

MSc skills training

You'll be trained in professional skills like:

  • structuring and drafting patent claims
  • interpreting IP law
  • researching IP sources
  • mastering technical language
  • pleading before the EPO and UPC

As an MSc graduate, you will have the academic, legal and patent drafting skills to successfully compete for positions and work in an international environment at:

  • national and European patent offices or industrial property bureaus
  • research institutes and technology transfer offices
  • national and international NGOs (e.g. Free Software Foundation Europe, International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development)
  • industry associations, national/transnational innovative corporations and knowledge intensive industries (high-tech, ICT, nano-tech, biotech, life sciences, chemistry)
