Intellectual Property Law
What will you learn?
The Intellectual Property Law programme is comprehensive and covering a variety of areas of professional activities in the field of law, business or administration. The aim is to give the doctoral students an extensive offer of courses to help them study their preferred area(s) of interest, as broad and deep as possible.
The programme is based on common philosophic and methodologic grounds, whereas legal pragmatism provides for core methodology and information philosophy serves as substantive philosophical fundament. On this basis, there are developed relatively independent courses in main areas of intellectual property law that should provide for complex understanding of dominant regulatory phenomena of Intellectual Property law – namely copyrights, patents, trademarks and designs.
Practical training is not envisaged as explicit part of this programme.
It is very likely that students of this programme will have actual practice in intellectual property law during their studies.
Students of combined form of this programme will most likely be engaged in professional legal practice related to IP in law firms, business units or at courts. Students of full-time will very likely engage in IP-related contracted research at one of participating institutions (Masaryk University or the Academy of Sciences) or undertake other practical tasks in IP as a part of their university assignment (e.g. by working at the MU Technology Transfer Office).
Intellectual property law is a well-established area of legal practice. Thus, it is likely that graduates of this doctoral programme will mostly aim at high-profile positions namely in professional legal service (soliciting or in-house practice) in national or multinational commercial establishment as well as in the specific administrative bodies dealing with the intellectual property law related issued (Industrial Property Office).
Nevertheless, there is a significant academic and scientific agenda in this field as well, so it is the primary aim of the programme to generate fully qualified academics and researchers and motivate them to engage in further academic work in the field of intellectual property law.
The study programme of Intellectual Property Law does not (cannot) replace professional preparation for regulated occupations (patent attorney, attorney-at-law, notary, judge etc.).
