The French section
Whether students are engineers/scientists (A) or law students (B), they can choose between 2 types of degree courses.
A) Degree courses for engineers and scientists
There are two scenarios:
- Students who have no professional experience follow a course during one academic year called the "long tuition". It is divided into two six-month periods: the first semester being about patents of invention and the second about trademarks and industrial design.
- Students who already have professional experience can follow a crash course or "accelerated tuition" throughout the academic year:
- Accelerated course for engineers and scientists (8 weeks);
- Accelerated course for legal scholars/law students and engineers/scientists who have a CEIPI degree.
All students are awarded either a "Patent of invention" or "Trademarks, designs and models" degree.
B) Degree courses for law students
In addition to the full-length "Trademarks, designs and models" degree (6 months) or the accelerated version (6 weeks), CEIPI also proposes various Master's degrees (L.LM Equivalent) with a specialization in "intellectual property".
- Three Master's degrees with a professional orientation:
- A Master's degree in "Intellectual property and valuation of intangible assets" ; this course is principally focused on obtaining, protecting and developing IP rights
- An "Intellectual property law and international business ", a more open course focusing on implementing and exploiting immaterial goods for companies and on commercialisation of goods and services integrating them,
- A Master's degree in "Intellectual property and cultural activities"
- A master's Degree in "Intellectual property law", focused on research and on the study of the latest IP key issues. This Master's degree emphasizes the European and international issues.
