We aim to provide courses intellectual property and related areas of the law of practical value to start-ups and other small businesses and their professional advisors.

These will be set at the following levels:

  • Toolkit: Short courses for entrepreneurs, investors and others without legal training on such matters as basic intellectual property law, identifying intellectual assets, licensing and son on;
  • Academy: Training in IP law for solicitors and counsel who do not regard themselves as IP specialists but need to know more about IP, technology, medium or competition law; and
  • Staff College: Conferences and seminars for IP specialists and patent and trade mark attorneys on the latest developments in the law.

Some of these courses will qualify for CPD points from the SRA, IP Reg and the BSB.
