Third Edition

  • Equips law students with legal knowledge appropriate for entry-level legal practice in IP
  • Provides a foundation to enable students to progress to more specialised postgraduate study of intellectual property law
  • Develops awareness of rights and commercialisation practices for scientists, creators and managers of IP rights
  • Moves away from a simplistic and overly dense treatment of the law, recognising the fluidity of the law and related policy changes
  • Selected cases are either: . Precedents (to give context to an enduring authority or to highlight a contrast with more recent reasoning in current law) . Current law (being a leading authority on the topic area) or; . Comparative law (to provide a different perspective on the issue)
  • This approach helps cover the basics while keeping policy challenges and international perspectives at the forefront
  • Allows for a more critical and engaged discussion of IP principles and, while retaining its traditional role as a casebook in exposing students to the field and its key principles
