Course Outline:

As technology plays an increasingly greater role in everyday life and as patents become more important to companies, the need to understand patent law grows.

A technical degree, while helpful, is not a pre-requisite to knowledge of patent law.

This class, taught by Ronald Yu, who has successfully taught non-lawyers as well as postgraduate and undergraduate law students aims to do that.

The course will cover:

  • The relationship of patent law to other intellectual property (IP) rights
  • The basics of patent law and patentability
  • Different types of patents:
    • Patents
    • Utility models
    • Petty patents
    • Short term patents
    • Design patents
  • What makes a patent valuable
  • Controversial subjects: Software patents
