IPR Courses

IP is today regarded as an important and effective policy instrument relevant to a wide range of socioeconomic, technological and political concerns. The development of skills and competence to manage IPR and leverage its influence requires increasing focus.

There is a need for developing skills in filing, reading and exploiting patents which will be crucial in the years to come. Our inventions must be protected. We must fully understand the implications of the patents granted to our competitors. Our graduates emerging from the engineering and technology streams lack any training in IPR even though they are strategic assets in the battle being fought in the knowledge market. Capacity building for IPR protection needs priority. IPRs must be made a compulsory subject in college law courses and in the Universities.

Keeping this in mind a number of business and law schools have started giving specialization courses on IP prominent among which include:

Global Institute of Intellectual Property offers Post Graduate Diploma and Certificate programs on Indian and US Patents & IP Laws, Processes and Services ()
IIT Kharagpur Rajiv Gandhi School Of Intellectual Property Law- Three year LLB programme with specialization in Intellectual Property and One and Half Year Post Graduate Diploma in Intellectual Property Law (PGDIPL) ()
