UTS has established expertise in and a reputation for providing courses relevant to the needs of the patent and trade mark professions. The UTS Juris Doctor Master of Intellectual Property is the first at an Australian university that fulfils the entire educational requirements for registration as a registered trade marks attorney and patent attorney in Australia under the relevant regulations.
The Juris Doctor (JD) is a graduate law degree that builds on the established reputation of UTS: Law to provide high-calibre, graduate-level education in the theory and practice of the law. It is specifically designed for graduates of disciplines other than law. The Juris Doctor qualifies as an Australian Qualifications Framework level 9 master's degree. The flexible nature of the JD allows students to work while they study and to tailor their workload to suit professional and personal commitments.
This course brings together knowledge and skills across the two areas of intellectual property and law. Students seeking exposure to both areas are able to undertake study in this one integrated course. Upon successful completion of this course students can seek registration as a trade marks attorney and patent attorney in Australia. This course provides students with the academic qualification required for admission to legal practice. Students who undertake additional study in Practical Legal Training (PLT) satisfy the practical requirements to seek admission, together with the academic requirements, to legal practice. UTS offers PLT with the Graduate Certificate in Professional Legal Practice (C11232).
