Intellectual Property and Commercial Practice

Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study at Swansea University - 'Welsh University of the Year 2017' (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017). It is estimated that 70 per cent of a typical company's value today lies in its intangible assets. Yet evidence would suggest that companies do not readily understand the nature of these legal assets nor manage them in an effective commercial manner, such that they are sometimes described as the 'hidden assets' of a business looking to operate in today's global market place. Students following this course will gain an in-depth legal knowledge of issues and the practical skills acquired will make them an invaluable asset to international commercial organisations. The programme will not only have an appeal to the aspiring practicing lawyer looking for a high level career in an international law firm or multinational company but also for legal advisers to small/medium sized enterprises.

Course modules

Modules typically include: competition law; e-commerce; international corporate law and governance; international intellectual property law; international commercial arbitration (accredited by the Institute of Chartered Arbitrators (CIArb)); law of intellectual assets management and transactions (compulsory); ship and other mobile assets finance law.

Assessment methods

All LLM modules are assessed by a combination of coursework and examination, with an equal weighting of 50% normally given to each component in the final total assessment.
