OER Description:

We were very grateful for contributions to the project from Caroline Coles a principal lecturer in the Faculty of Business and Law at De Montfort. Caroline is a specialist of business law and commercial law, and also ‘champions’ technology enhanced learning within the Law School and across the university.

These series of OER introduce students to patent law with relevance to any undergraduate subject. I’ ve used Caroline’s materials for example when teaching about the pharmaceutical industry and commercialisation of scientific ideas. They will form a good introduction to intellectual property and patenting for anyone.

OER Description:

We were very grateful for contributions to the project from Professor Price in the Faculty of Business and Law at De Montfort. It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of Professor Price last year. He joined the university in 1977 and was an expert in medical law, and wrote about law and ethics relating to the use of human tissue and transplantation.

In this OER David looks at cases relating to discrimination, deportation, housing, employment and medical treatment.
