Bocconi University and 4iP Council negotiate cooperation within the Bocconi LL.M in Law of Internet Technology

26 April 2017

Today, 4iP Council, an organization representing leading technology inventors in Europe, announced that it entered into negotiation with Bocconi University, one of the most prominent research universities in Europe and in the world.

This negotiation aims at establishing cooperation within Bocconi’s new and unique LL.M. in Law of Internet Technology. This innovative LL.M is directed at graduate students, lawyers and legal practitioners in general. It will be delivered on the Bocconi campus from September 2017.

Bocconi University and 4iP Council are considering the possibility to organize together activities and events related to intellectual property and technology. Such cooperation, if developed, might be a first step of a solid relationship between the two partners, since 4iP Council as well as the most dynamic universities are interested in entrepreneurial behaviour that underpins innovation, and drives social and economic prosperity, for which intellectual property rights play a key role.

The LL.M. in Law of Internet Technology is a 12 month long Master of Law program, taught entirely in English, fully dedicated to law, international digital environments and technology. It focuses on all key areas of interest for lawyers and legal practitioners dealing with innovation, the Internet and technological development. The programme is unique in the world in providing a thorough understanding of international legal issues emerging in the digital age, including intellectual property protection and competition rules. Emphasis is placed on the freedom of contracts, individuals, and businesses in digital environments.

4iP Council is proud to discuss with Bocconi University this draft cooperation project and to contribute its research and experience to a faculty comprising the most renowned international experts and practitioners. We look forward to lively debates in this project, and further research on critical industry and policy issues,” said Audrey Scozzaro Ferrazzini, 4iP Council member and senior government affairs executive at Qualcomm.
