About

The Intellectual Property Law degree at Brunel University London is a unique, part-time programme with two separate routes designed for trainee patent attorneys with STEM degrees or for trainee trade mark attorneys. It is also suitable for people wishing to pursue a more general career in intellectual property law and practice.

Overview

The PGCert is accredited with IPREG and provides two separate routes of Foundation Level Qualification (Patents) and a Foundation Level Qualification (Trade Marks). Candidates may undertake either one or the other as part of the PgCert programme or combine the two FLQs in Patents and Trade Marks as part of an LLM in Intellectual Property.

In addition, Intellectual Property PgCert alumni have the option to upgrade to an LLM in Intellectual Property should they choose to re-enrol as returning students within the first five years after their graduation from Brunel.

You will get a comprehensive overview of the theoretical, practical and management aspects of intellectual property, at both national and international levels, with a solid grounding in:

  • the basic rules and principles of intellectual property law as well as the nature and scope of these rights 
  • the procedures for the granting and recognition of these rights 
  • the mechanisms for the enforcement of these rights 
  • patents, copyrights, trademarks and contract resolution

The Intellectual Property Law degree at Brunel University London is suitable for law graduates and those with backgrounds in the sciences, technology, engineering and business. Non-graduates currently working in the area of intellectual property are also considered. No prior legal knowledge is required, as you will be introduced to the essential legal principles throughout the course. As this is a part-time, you can remain in full-time employment while you study. UK employers currently sponsor over 80% of students taking the course.

Careers and your future

You will leave Brunel with a firm grounding in Intellectual Property Law. After you graduate you will be well equipped to get into the specialist area of Intellectual Property as a practitioner or adviser at national or international level or as a lawyer, patent or trademark attorney, IP portfolio manager, IP examiner, or IP paralegal.
