- This is a compulsory unit in the Graduate Diploma in Chinese Business Law (20390). It covers not only intellectual property law, which is a major focus of China today, but also a new and crucial dimension of it—China's booming innovation-based economy. It aims to prepare students for China's major economic driving force in the near future—the innovation-based economy.
The unit provides students with (1) a comprehensive analysis of China's intellectual property laws and policies; (2) a comprehensive analysis of China's pro-innovation policies, laws and incentives and its cultural and social contexts; and (3) an overall analysis of China's high tech economy and creative industries.
- Students are able to (1) develop an integrated understanding of the development of China's intellectual property laws and pro-innovation policies alongside an ability to critically evaluate them; (2) employ a multicultural understanding of the ethical implications of intellectual property law; (3) contextually analyse the importance of innovation economy to foreign–Chinese relationships; and advise clients on general matters concerning China's intellectual property law and government schemes supporting innovation economy; (4) conduct independent research and group work demonstrating a high level of theoretical and advanced integrated knowledge; (5) develop unique practical skills in advising those engaging in business in China on intellectual property issues; enhance their ability to work in a group and conduct independent research; and (6) organise and structure time and resources in the efficient pursuit of academic excellence and skill building.
- Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) presentations and (2) research paper. Further information is available in the unit outline.
