About This Professional Doctorate

Course Description

This part-time course provides a development opportunity and will increase your prospects and employability by giving you practical skills and theoretical knowledge that firms and Intellectual Property departments, alike, are demanding.

It is designed to give a detailed overview of substantive intellectual property law. On successful completion of this course, you will obtain full exemptions from the foundation level examinations for qualification as a patent attorney or trade mark attorney in the UK (IPReg/CIPA/ITMA). Please indicate on your application form if you want to follow the patent attorney or trade mark attorney path.

If you do not have prior legal knowledge you will be supported by a range of online activities relating to foundational principles of law (such as English legal system, contract law and tort).

The course is delivered over five months, with an extensive programme of online work and three block weekends taught in Bournemouth. The attendance dates are:
•9-11 February 2017
