· Quali sono gli obiettivi del corso?
Our goal is to enable our students to acquire the professional skills in accordance with the regulations governing admission to the bar (Law 34/2006 and its Royal Decree 775/2011), and pass the national entrance test to be convened annually, which is the final requirement, once the Master's Degree has been awarded, to be admitted to the bar. Alongside such objective, the aim is to train top professionals in the field of intellectual property in the 21st century, enhancing the legal, economic and technical training of students, so that they may adapt to the real needs of companies, firms and organizations working in the field of intellectual property, specifically in the new market environment. Therefore, the students will be encouraged to delve, in an integrated manner, into the legal, economic and technological areas of knowledge required for the specialized management that these rights demand in their various fields, and learn from the top professionals in the field of intellectual property.
· A chi è diretto?
This program covers the necessary contents that are required by the rules governing admission to the bar so that holders of a Bachelor's Degree in Law may engage in the legal profession as lawyers. Moreover, the training received by the students is supplemented with a second program, the Official Master's Degree in Intellectual Property, offered by the Faculty of Law at ICADE. Therefore, this program is especially suited not only to Bachelor's Degree graduates, but also to holders of a Licentiate Degree in Law who wish to receive more comprehensive and advanced training in the practice of law in the context of a Intellectual Property. The admission process will consist in assessing the academic background of applicants by looking at their academic transcript and, where appropriate, requesting them to take an English test and attend an interview with the program's Joint Directors and/or Coordinator.

Having an academic record with an overall grade of remarkable (a score of 7.0) or higher in the Bachelor's Degree or equivalent program. Providing proof of sufficient knowledge of English, particularly in the field of Law.
· In cosa si differenzia questo corso dagli altri?
Given the new requirements for the practice of law, the Faculty of Law has proposed simultaneously pursuing two complementary Master's Degree programs, so as to meet this demand. This means that the graduates from the Bachelor's Degree in Law must study the Official Master's Degree for Admission to the Bar, a generalist program that provides them with the training necessary to engage in various existing legal proceedings. Moreover, these circumstances raise professional interest to specialize in Intellectual Property. It is also worth noting some of the other advantages of the degree program: an essentially practical approach to the legal profession, the level of excellence and vast experience of the lecturers that constitute the faculty staff and the official in-company internship module that will allow our students to gain work experience in the most renowned firms, institutions, companies, organizations and government agencies in the field of copyright and related rights, including industrial property and new technologies.
