New course could improve negotiation skills

Nottingham Law School (NLS) unveils new course for trademark lawyers

14 July 2010

Nottingham Law School (NLS) has launched a new course which aims to improve student's negotiation skills.

The institution has formed a partnership with the Institute of Trademark Attorneys (ITMA) to create the Professional Certificate in Trademark Practice.

In addition to perfecting their negotiation skills, candidates will be taught how to interview clients, professional ethics and conduct and contract drafting.

Course leader Jane Jarman claimed trademark lawyers are now required to have negotiation training as their role involves more business exposure.

She said: "They must interact with business colleagues and with clients to a much greater extent, and, to that end, students need to be equipped with the skills to do this successfully."

The training will cover many of the legal aspects taught to fellow professionals such as solicitors and barristers.

A transitional course for eligible students will start later this year with the full course available in 2011.
