The courses also address global IP policy-making and the framework of international treaties that govern IP law, IP and human rights, legal aspects of commercialising and enforcing IP and competition law perspectives. Where relevant, the potential impacts and consequences of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU (Brexit) are also considered.
