UG Coursework Unit
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
analyse the purpose, nature and function of intellectual property rights in Australia, in both their intranational and international contexts
evaluate and apply legal doctrines and principles relevant to the protection of intellectual property rights
critically evaluate the role of economic factors, including competition theory and the power of vested corporate and state interests, in determining the nature and scope of contemporary intellectual property rights
research, identify and evaluate important public policy issues arising from contested areas of intellectual property protection, such as the patenting of genetic materials and the commercialisation of traditional cultural expressions and medicines.
