Delivered online or in-person, this 15-credit course covers some of the most important theoretical and practical fundamentals of intellectual property law
Certificate courses are an ideal solution for professionals who are looking to build specialised knowledge but may not have the time and resources for a full-time master’s degree. And the University of New Hampshire’s Franklin Pierce School of Law is well aware of this; the top 5 law school is offering a graduate certificate course in Intellectual Property.
Delivered online or in-person, this 15-credit course covers some of the most important theoretical and practical fundamentals of intellectual property law and patent law. In fact, this course has been designed to not only benefit the practicing lawyer but a wider range of individuals including students, patent or trademark practitioners, and technology managers.
Applicants also have the option to choose from a wide range of electives including: Technology Licensing, Trademarks and Deceptive Practices, Mining Patent Information in the Digital Age, and Intellectual Property Crimes. And given the time constraints that professionals may face, this course can be completed full-time in 4 months or at a part-time pace within 18 months.
Furthermore, like all courses at Franklin Pierce, students will derive tremendous benefits from the talented faculty and a global network of influential IP practitioners
The IP course is not the only certificate course on offer; UNH is also offering a certificate course on International Criminal Law and Justice. The ICLJ program is one of the only online transnational crime programs.
The ICLJ course is designed for lawyers, professionals, and scholars in diplomatic, criminal, military or law enforcement communities around the globe. You’ll gain a global perspective on the most pressing issues in international criminal law and justice today, from the expanding reach of domestic criminal statutes to commerce issues around terrorism to crimes of war, drug laundering, human trafficking, human rights, international white-collar crime and cybercrime.
Best of all, credits from both of these course can be applied to the award of a master’s degree should you choose to continue your education.
Says Sarah Dorner, Associate Director of Admissions at Franklin Pierce, “These certificate courses are a great way of testing the waters so to speak, of our graduate programs. In fact, coursework from the IP Graduate Certificate program, as well as the International Criminal Law & Justice Graduate Certificates can be applied as credit toward a master’s degree from our law school.”
Applications for the online course close on August 1, 2020. More details here.
