The Master of Laws in Intellectual Property is designed for participants wanting to acquire the skills required to play a leading role in intellectual property rights (IPR) practice and teaching through exposure to an international and comparative approach. IP law faces unprecedented challenges. Emerging phenomena such as cloud computing, biotechnological inventions and big data give rise to an ongoing need to define an optimal interface between law and technology. Similarly, IP law has become a crucial factor in economic, scientific and societal/moral decisions. In view of the above, the LL.M. in IP attracts professionals from the public and private sectors, as well as junior academics who wish to acquire the skills required to play a leading role in the practice and teaching of IP. The curriculum includes an in-depth examination of the classic topics of IP law, as well as a specialized analysis of the latest developments in the fields of patents, trademarks, domain names, copyright and related rights, design, software and databases, integrated circuits, biotechnological patents and plant varieties, the internet and e-commerce. The diversified profiles and backgrounds of the students and lecturers make the LL.M. a truly international forum for exchange of knowledge and opinion, and discussion of the ideas inherent in various legal systems.

en Impact evaluation of public policies, programmes and projects (OPEN)

The aim of impact evaluation is to assess the relevance and effectiveness of a project, programme or public policy in bringing about a desired change in the well-being of the target population, as well as to measure improvements in pre-defined indicators in the particular sector, where applicable, that can be attributed to the development intervention. The evaluation is usually undertaken during a defined period subsequent to the implementation of a given intervention using a variety of techniques, including counterfactual impact, that measure/compare the results achieved with what would have happened (to the beneficiaries) had the project/programme intervention not taken place. Participants will be assisted in performing an impact evaluation of a selected project (case study), putting into practice what they have learned in the course.
