Integral to the commercial law field, Intellectual Property (IP) knowledge is central to culture, innovation, and enterprise. Looking forward to the new academic norm, Teaching Intellectual Property Law: Strategy and Management uses experience as well as interactive, practice-based methods for teaching IP to examine the various ways through which to move on from ‘chalk and talk’ methods.

Crucial to science, technology, art, fashion and creative industries as well as to business creation and management, it is unsurprising that IP surfaces in curricula within and beyond the law school. Providing multiple examples, exercises and teaching tips to identify the transferable aspects of IP teaching, this book provides educators with new approaches to tailor content delivery to their students. Focused on the profile of the contemporary learner, it invites educators to adopt new approaches to impart knowledge that will empower IP students of all disciplines, at all levels.

Teaching Intellectual Property Law: Strategy and Management will be a useful resource for higher education law academics offering Intellectual Property education modules in law schools, to facilitate contemporary approaches to traditional law school content. It will also be of value to tertiary educators inspired, or instructed, to include IP education in their programmes as well as enterprise and entrepreneurship educators and trainers, to further IP relevance to enterprise and entrepreneurship.
Critical Acclaim
‘As intellectual property has developed from a ’fringe law school subject‘ (Soetendorp) into an issue leaving hardly any aspect of society, commerce and science unaffected, teaching of intellectual property must meet novel challenges resulting from increased diversity in the background, sophistication and expectations of audiences. In that situation, this great book is a much-needed gap filler for those seeking orientation and inspiration in the field. Not only does it offer a multi-perspective tour d’horizon on relevant issues, but it also presents a valuable source of information concerning methods, tools, and best practices to improve the mutual experience of all involved in the teaching and learning process.’
– Annette Kur, Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition, Germany

''This timely collection of stimulating essays does more than fill a gap in the literature; it fills an aching void in the imagination of far too many intellectual property teachers. Teaching Intellectual Property Law: Strategy and Management invites a challenge to traditional IP pedagogy that should be hard to resist.''
– Professor Jeremy Phillips, founder of #IPKat

‘This is an excellent tome that is a delight to read and absorb. The work contains top-quality contributions from established scholars and research. The book invites us to consider how we can adopt a multidisciplinary approach when conveying Intellectual property law to a varied audience. The work offers excellent insights on the “modern student” who is used to having everything a click away. How do we intellectual property aficionados enthuse such listeners? Dip in this book to discover how to incorporate learning outcomes or combat modern technology-based challenges (such as Chat GPT ). The various chapters offer thoughtful and clear guidelines as to how we engage with students from diverse disciplinary backgrounds, using a plethora of approaches from drum kits to card games to empirical research. It is an essential reading for both experienced practitioners and scholars, but especially vital for early career researchers and teachers.’
– Uma Suthersanen, Queen Mary University of London, UK
