Course Aims and Objectives
The course commences by giving a fundamental grounding in the protection of intangible proprietary interests – such as patents, copyright and trademarks – in the UK. The course also examines intellectual property law from a global perspective, making reference to international conventions and treaties and exploring some of the ways in which the resolution of intellectual property disputes is complicated by a conflict of laws. The course will further introduce the student to some of the commonly arising disputes within the field of intellectual property law, with reference to examples and case studies.
This training course provides in-depth information on the types of disputes that can arise and the several available methods of dispute resolution, which can be consensual, adjudicative or hybrid.
The course will also outline the advantages and disadvantages of various methods of alternative dispute resolution and suggest that some are more effective in achieving a fair settlement in intellectual property disputes. The course will incorporate opportunities for the student to not only engage with the issues relating to intellectual property disputes from a theoretical perspective, but also undertake a mock negotiation. Students will be encouraged to take a critical approach towards their use of practical negotiation skills and reflect on the use of negotiation (and other forms of ADR) as an effective alternative dispute resolution tool to achieve settlement.
This Settlement of Intellectual Property Disputes training programme is intended to be exceedingly hands on and incorporates practical workshop sessions and a mock demonstration of dispute session.
1. The module will be taught by means of lectures and workshops and the knowledge and understanding from the students will be consolidated by both formative and summative assessments. Lectures will adopt a broad-based approach to the exposition of the indicative content as well as class activities. Workshops will comprise discussion questions designed to develop the student’s understanding of the content and other interactive activities to assist with the student’s learning. Learning is supplemented by further reading and self-directed research.
2. While it is assumed that students will come to the course with a basic knowledge of intellectual property law, there will be opportunities to consolidate understanding of basic IP law principles at regular stages throughout the course. Active participation in the workshops is expected of all students. Workshops will also provide an opportunity for students to raise any questions or issues relating to the assessments.
At the end of this training course, participants will be able to:
1. Provide knowledge and understanding of legal concepts and principles in relation to patents, trade marks and copyright in key jurisdictions, such as the UK;
2. Appreciate the workings of the WTO, WIPO and TRIPS and understand their aims and limitations in development of creative industries and innovations;
3. Provide a detailed and practical understanding of different types of ADR (particularly, arbitration, mediation, expert determination and negotiation);
4. Critically understand the relationship between the use of alternative dispute resolution and IP disputes;
5. Apply legal concepts and principles in relation to intellectual property to determine and advocate appropriate strategies for negotiating settlements in IP disputes.
