LAWS 2203 ‑ Intellectual Property Law II
CREDIT HOURS: 3
This is a seminar designed to enable students to discuss, research, generally explore in in-depth ways and to write papers on special topics in intellectual property rights, especially those that are of contemporary interest. Courses will be flexible and will endeavour to focus on a range of topics considered to be of contemporary relevance in regard to the intersections of intellectual property rights with, and their impact on, other areas of law and public policy both nationally and globally. In addition to sustaining a contemporary focus, the seminar will explore basic concepts that will assist students to understand current developments and transitions in the intellectual property arena. Students will be shepherded to generate and explore researchable issues in their areas of interests in order to meet their individual and collective expectations from the seminar. There is no technical background or expertise required for enrolment. Generally, students are expected to make use of the Internet and other research tools to access seminar-related materials and to advance their research interests.
