LL.M. Intellectual Property and Competition Law

Munich Intellectual Property Law Center MIPLC
Campus Full time October 2017 Germany Munich

The MIPLC provides a truly international and interdisciplinary experience, thanks to its four partners, international faculty, and students from all over the world. [+]

Best LL.Ms in LLM Commercial Law in Germany 2017. Why Study IP Law at the MIPLC? Thank you for your interest in our LL.M. program "Intellectual Property and Competition Law." On this page, we would like to explain two things: a) why we feel intellectual property and competition law are relevant, and b) what makes the MIPLC special. Why Study Intellectual Property and Competition Law? As matters relating to intellectual property play an important role in the fields of science, technology, business and the arts, the need for expertise in intellectual property issues increases. No matter what your profession or educational training, in the course of your work you will have come across the multifaceted and fascinating nature of IP in action. The various aspects of IP law and related areas of competition law may seem independent of each other at first glance. However, in daily practice, especially when dealing with multinational clients, it quickly becomes apparent that they are highly interconnected. To cite just one example, in order to strategically manage an IP portfolio, one must have both a firm grasp of various areas of IP law as well as an understanding of the relevant markets. Whereas in the past such knowledge was divided among several departments within a company or various experts within a law firm, the complexity of modern IP transactions now demands that each person involved on a project or case possess well-rounded knowledge of IP related issues. This know-how improves the internal processes of communication, the image of the business and, last but not least, the finished "product". Our Program The MIPLC provides a truly international and interdisciplinary experience, thanks to its four partners, international faculty, and students from all over the world. With just 38 students (maximum) per year, our program is much smaller than others. This guarantees intensive interaction between students, professors, and staff, as well as personalized support. Our courses are designed specially for our program and our students. Our program is: Specialized and fully-accredited, and intensive Suitable for law graduates and students with other backgrounds alike Taught entirely in English Multi-jurisdictional, covering civil law and common law traditions and multiple countries Diverse with a wide variety of modules to choose from Interdisciplinary, discussing all aspects of IP from the legal and relevant economic perspectives Applicable, with the practical aspects of IP covered in simulations, case-studies, and internship Supplemented with study visits to European Patent Office and other IP organizations, an optional study visit to Washington, D.C., and guest lectures and talks throughout the year A member of the EIPIN network Located in Europe's IP Capital Munich Our Curriculum Our curriculum is highly comprehensive, covering a wide variety of areas, subject matters, and jurisdictions. We aim to give our students an extensive selection of courses to allow them to study their preferred area(s) of interest as broadly and deeply as possible. Comprehensive reading and study materials are provided for each course. Our Students An educational institution cannot live without students. At the MIPLC, we are proud of our outstanding student body, who further enliven the study experience with their diverse and amazing personalities. Our program is truly international and interdisciplinary, and so are our students. They have backgrounds in law, economics, engineering, natural sciences, and other fields. They come to the MIPLC from all over the world to prepare for ambitious careers in the IP sector, especially as attorneys, patent agents, judges, business experts, scientists, engineers, and university faculty members. We are especially proud of training a student sponsored by the Japanese Supreme Court every year. Many of our students join the MIPLC relatively soon after completing their primary studies and gaining initial professional experience. However, we also continue to attract professionals with extensive practical IP experience who decide to undertake further studies. We have therefore been able to welcome students aged 21 to 50 to our classroom. The average age of each class of students is about 30 years. Courses and Modules The courses offered at the MIPLC are split up into four types of modules: The Introductory Module: This is a preparatory, no-credit module. Participation is optional but strongly recommended to all students, a especially in classes that cover unfamiliar topics. The Basic Modules: There are four Basic Modules that are mandatory for all students and are completed by one exam per module. These modules cover the core areas of IP - patents, copyright, trademarks, and design - but also basic cross-cutting topics, such as European Law or Jursidiction and Conflict of Laws. The Elective Modules: 12 specialized Elective Modules allow students to focus their studies on subjects they are particularly interested in. Due to the students' varied interests, class size in the elective courses is usually small. While the majority of the Elective Modules work on an exam-per-course basis, three modules are concluded by a single exam per module. This allows students to take into account their preferred studying and examination style when selecting their modules. The Master's Thesis Module: Completing a Master's thesis is a requirement for all students, as the thesis is a central component of the LL.M. program. Its preparation is an excellent opportunity to explore a particular topic in great depth and on a highly sophisticated level. Students start to work on their Master's thesis early on in the program. They may choose their topic freely to correspond to personal interests and career goals. Each student is assigned a thesis supervisor with whom they can discuss issues that come up in the course of their research. The final thesis, due about six weeks after the completion of the summer term, should run to about 55-75 pages. In selecting a topic for the Master's thesis, students may benefit from MIPLC's participation in the European University Network set up by the Office for the Harmonization of the Internal Market (OHIM). In the context of this network, students from participating universities can write their Master's thesis on a topic suggested by one of the designated OHIM "research advisers." The advisers are experienced OHIM staff members who provide additional guidance and support to the students. A research session takes place at OHIM's premises in Alicante in July. Attendance of this session is mandatory for participating students, who will give a ten-minute oral presentation on their research. [-]

Depending on the focus of their studies, graduates are awarded either a Master of Laws (LLM ) or a Master of Law and Business (MLB ). A Word from the Dean, Professor Clifford Larsen In order to give students a comprehensive education at the intersection of law and business, the unique LLM/MLB curriculum takes the life-cycle of a business enterprise and pursues both the legal and business aspects of that development. This includes the founding of the enterprise, transforming the firm into a publicly-held enterprise, going international, merging with or acquiring another firm, and restructuring a firm that has financial difficulties. By using the development of an enterprise as its structural backbone, the Program creates synergies among its various modules. As a result, the students study more efficiently and obtain a better overall understanding of the interrelationship of law and business. Students analyze the realization of an entrepreneurial idea, investigate the founding of a business enterprise, and evaluate the international growth and development of that enterprise. Elective modules allow students to deepen their knowledge in additional areas of law and business. A mandatory internship and writing of a master’s thesis add practice-oriented and research components to the Program. As a result of this curriculum, LLM /MLB graduates boast an impressive set of skills and knowledge with direct relevance for work in international companies, law firms, and other organizations. They belong to that group of cutting-edge professionals who have been systematically trained to take an interdisciplinary approach to legal and management questions.
