Intellectual Property Law 1 - Copyright and Related Rights
International Intellectual Property
International IP & IT Institutions, Law and Policy
Intellectual Property Law 2 - Industrial Property
Intellectual Property and Technology - Developing Countries
Managing Intellectual Property

If that's of interest, don't hesitate to drop me a line via PM - or visit the website for my contact details.

Good luck!

Colin.

Take a look at the Master of Science in Intellectual Property Management course, at the National University of Singapore (NUS). It incorporates both the law and science, with the law segment offered by the NUS law school in the form of the Graduate Certificate in Intellectual Property (GCIP). This segment (which can be pursued by itself), together with the technology modules, make up the Master of Science (IP Management) degree.

Details at http://www.eng.nus.edu.sg/cmost/Program/msc-ipm.htm and http://www.ipacademy.com.sg/section/education/gcip.html

Thanks info. provided by Miller and NUSLLM-alantan. Would you kindly advise me of such law schools in the U.S.?

I have been working as a patent agent in China for 6 years. At the same time, I am conducting some research projects about patent analysis and evaluation for an academy. But I didn't have a law degree. My bachalor and master degrees are both Library Science.

Next year, I will go to America as a visiting scholar for one year. I hope I can learn an LLM course specialized in Intellectual Property Laws in this given year.

I searched several schools information, but they all require a law degree for the applicants. Would you kindly advise me of such law schools in U.S. without a law degree background?

Thanks a lot.

Hi,

From the info I've gathered from their websites, these american IP programs (eg. Stanford) you talk about also require a previous law degree? Do you have a link where you found your info?

Because I'm a bachelor in electrical engineering and master engineering in Nanotechnology and Nanoscience and I would love to work in the field of creating/investing/buying/selling of small high-tech companies where knowledge of IP law is ofcourse very very useful. Really working as a (patent) attorney is not my goal

I certainly welcome all advice about programs which you see most suitable to achieve this goal.

The programs that caught my eye so far are MIPLC in Europe(Munich) and Stanford, Yale, Harvard FPierce in the states. However every program in the states seems to require a law degree.

Thanks in advance for your responses

Hey Anthony,

the info that I gave about the universities in the US and the programs offered by them......I could tell you that this information was authentic until last year as I had personally written to these universities to find out if they accept students with non-legal backgrounds.......I am not too sure if the admission requirements have been revised in this year.......may be the best thing to do is send them an email with ur qualification and ask them if you are eligible to apply.

However I got admitted to MIPLC and about to finish my course in 8 weeks. The input I can give you is that the teaching and learning methodoloy at miplc is very very good. Also since they have faculty coming from all over the globe they provide a global perspective of the IP issues whether it be US, EU or Asia. My experience here has been very enriching not only for the law aspects but also on business aspects as miplc offers a number of business related subjects as well.

hope this helps

Hi everyone!

I also would like to take an LLM but I have no law degree (I have a MA in literature in Europe).

I've been working for two years in a law firm in China, mainly dealing with trademarks (but I deal sometimes also with patents and copyrights).

Now I would like to take a LLM in IP but it has to be Distance Learning (also because I want to go on working full time)...

Any suggestions?

George Mason in the US has an LLM program and accepts non law degree students from outside the US. I don't think it DL though. Many US programs allow international students to take the LLM without a law degree, although some require that you work in your governments copyright or IP offices. If you find any LLM DL programs that sound appealing, just write to the program director and ask specifically about the requirements for foreign (non-US) students.

hi..
I'm in the fourth year of my law programme from National Law University ,GUjarat.
I'm very confused as to what should i do after i graduate in 2010..B.Sc LLB(Hons) is the degree which i am going to get.Im really interested in IPRs and tryingto find the most suitable course for a pg dgeree in the same subject or may be in media law.

Also i'm not sure whether i should work for sometime and then study or stdy straight away.Though i'm more intersted in completing my qualification first and then start working.

do suggest some suitable courses ..my aggreagate would be somehwhere around 60%..if you could also tell me the criteria for its equivalents in UK and US it would really help.As i'm not really clear on the same.

Thank you!!
