The Dickson Poon School of Law has a long history of strength in IP law. In addition to our undergraduate IP offerings and our Intellectual Property and Information Law Pathway, we offer a Diploma/ MA programme in UK, EU & US Copyright Law. Each year we select and coach a King’s team for the Oxford International Intellectual Property Moot, for which we were semi-finalists in 2021 and runners-up in 2022. Our IP academics conduct research in a range of areas, using doctrinal, empirical, historical, interdisciplinary and comparative methodologies. The successful candidate will join a supportive group of colleagues, with many opportunities for that person to develop professionally and take on leadership roles.
