New LLM Degree in Intellectual Property and Commercial Practice

New LLM degree

Swansea Law School has launched a new LLM degree in Intellectual Property and Commercial Practice under the directorship of Mr Andrew Beale OBE. This Programme offers specialisation in new and legally dynamic areas relating to the intangible assets of the business. It is estimated that 70% 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 new LLM 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 appeal to the aspiring practising 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.

Applicants will require a good undergraduate degree either in law or a closely related discipline. For more information click here
