This course is the final course in the Master of Laws Programme in European Intellectual Property Law. The aim is for the student to use his/her knowledge acquired to date in the programme and carry out an independent, sophisticated research project. The student shall plan and write an academic paper on a suitably focused subject area within European intellectual property law. The subject for the Master thesis can be interdisciplinary. The subject matter, focus and supervisor is determined in the preceding specialised elective course.
The Master thesis project consists of writing a coherent academic paper. On the way to the final academic paper, the student will write preparatory memoranda regarding approach, research questions, and focusing the subject, that are presented and discussed in a group at seminars as well as individually with a supervisor who will also provide written feedback.
The degree project is to be completed individually.
The course involves development, deepening and specialisation, both in terms of subject and approach, of the first term's courses in the Master Programme in European Intellectual Property Law.
