The training will be interactive sessions with Trainers (IP Attorneys, Experts and Practitioners) including group discussions, self learning exercises, simulations, case studies, scenario exercises. The objective is to promote a collaborative learning environment with constant inputs and feedback from the learners. Where ever possible, the focus will be on ‘real world’ problems and probable solution strategies. The focus will be to deliver content that can help conceptual understanding and practical application of critical content in a relatively short period of time.


The course is being offered full-time and Live Interactive Classes. The three-week course will be delivered by a team of experts that allows participants to access coursework, projects, assignments, discussion boards, and live engagement opportunities with instructors and classmates.
