Curriculum and subjects
Given the diverse geographic origin of the students, this subject will use the parameters of international law and will include aspects of European law (European Union).
This course is made up of two parts; each of them will have the same number of sessions:
- The first part which will be taught by Professor Maria Mut, will focus on the way International Public Law protects and manages culture and art in all of its forms, both tangible and intangible.
- The second part which will be taught by Carlos Rivadulla, will focus on the regime of intellectual property, taking into account the process of international harmonization that this discipline has recently experienced.
Both parts of the course will have theoretical content as well as practical cases.
