Intellectual Property Law Directions focuses on the practical issues of United Kingdom intellectual property law at the same time as demonstrating how the subject is being shaped by outside forces.
This text is written in a lively and engaging manner with an emphasis on explaining the key topics covered on intellectual property law courses with clarity. Intellectual Property Law Directions uses thinking points, reflective questions, chapter summaries and learning objectives to help develop students' understanding. It also uses case close-up boxes to quickly identify and explain key cases.
Written by a university lecturer with over 20 years' experience of teaching intellectual property, this book provides a clear and structured approach to the subject, with a strong emphasis on student-centred learning.
