Certificate Short Course (IP Law)



The Short Course in Intellectual Property Law is presented annually during the second or third term of the academic year and awards a certificate of attendance from Stellenbosch University.

This certificate programme is accredited at NQF level 6 by Stellenbosch University’s Division: Short Courses and is presented by the Anton Mostert Chair of IP Law in the Faculty of Law at Stellenbosch University.

The short course (3 days) in IP law is aimed at non-legal or non-IP practitioners, those in business, commerce, engineering, arts or sciences or indeed anyone with an interest in this crucial field of law.

The course is specifically designed to provide students with an introduction to this field of law and its practical application, and has no admission or examination requirements.

Presented by leaders in the field of IP law and practice, the course promises to be both exciting and rewarding while equipping students with a sound understanding of how relevant (and indeed crucial) IP is to every endeavour.  The course includes specific reference to aspects of IP and IP law relating to and derived from electronic commerce, communication and digital work and a number of applied case studies.
