In the wake of globalization in India, it is of utmost importance to be ahead in innovations and creativeness to compete with stiff competition in trade and technology. In order to touch on most areas of commercial and artistic activities, IP Law is an essential component of modern society. India is well recognized for its intellectual skills in the fields of software engineering, missile technology, and other technological areas however, it lags in the generation of IPR assets. The development of any society directly depends on IPR and its policy framework. Lack of IPR awareness resulted in the death of inventions, high risk of infringement, economic loss and decline of an intellectual era in the country. Thus, there is a dire need for the dissemination of IPR information so as to boost indigenous inventions and developments in the field of research and technology. Unfortunately, the current law school curriculum is restricted only to the theoretical learning of the concept of IPR and IPR laws are taught summarily as a part of the syllabus with barely any emphasis on practical aspects of the same.


This Course on the basics of IPR has been designed with an objective to provide a platform for candidates to gain practical and legal knowledge by conducting it in an interactive format with real-life case studies to understand the various nuances of Intellectual Property Rights and its importance for innovation and growth of businesses and the economy as a whole.

Further, the course provides inclusive knowledge about IPR, its role in the various sectors of the economy and aims to elaborate on the emerging trends in the legal, technical and business issues associated with the IP field. The course is designed in a manner to not only help aspiring and practicing lawyers to up their game in order to protect their clients’ innovations and products, but also Entrepreneurs to transform their game-changing products and services into quantifiable market value and trump competition and professionals (in the creative field or otherwise)to gauge the value of their offerings to prospective clients, current stakeholders and competitors.

This course creates a pathway for students and professionals from all fields (legal or otherwise) to enhance their output and create a formidable CV by understanding the IP systems and their role in the economy through the use of IPs. So if you are an individual with an “idea” or “innovation” be it for commercial, scientific or even record purposes, but clueless of how to protect it from being copied in today’s fast-paced competitive market, this course will equip you with all you need to be aware of qua intellectual property and how your intellectual property can be registered and protected.
