The convergence of intellectual property and trade is prominent since the advent of the New International Economic Order. Both the disciplines are so intertwined that the appreciation of one becomes meaningless in the absence of the other. The objective of this course is to enable a student to analyse the linkages between intellectual property and international trade, in a wider socio-economic and political perspective, both nationally and internationally. The course is also intended to expose the students to various effects of intellectual property and trade that might undermine the vital interests pertaining to human rights, environment etc.
The course is designed with sufficient emphasis on the practical nuances that emerge out of the theoretical underpinnings of both international trade and intellectual property laws. This specialisation is devised to serve the interests of students who seek to practice an international career that addresses the real time issues relating to intellectual property and international trade..
