Intellectual Property

Intellectual property is one of the most exciting and dynamic areas of the law. In our expanding knowledge economy, it is increasingly important for businesses and professionals to understand the significance and operation of laws that regulate the protection of brands, cultural products like music, film and publications, and scientific inventions and other forms of innovation. It is also vital to be aware of the impact of such laws on free expression, research and access to knowledge.

UNSW Law has a long-standing reputation for excellence and innovation in intellectual property. With a strong core of staff with unparalleled expertise in copyright, patent and trade mark law, we offer a range of practical and challenging undergraduate, JD and postgraduate courses that are designed to promote critical engagement with how intellectual property laws operate in a global marketplace.

UNSW Law’s Centres, Networks and Groups bring together some of the keenest academic minds in the law to address issues that matter. They provide excellent opportunities for our students to work alongside the discipline’s leading academics.
