Abstract

James Lahore moved to Britain in the early 1970s to set up an undergraduate course at the University of Southampton, a course that constituted the first undergraduate course on intellectual property taught in Britain. The module, a third year option, begun to be offered in 1975 and was taken over later by Gerald Dworkin, who became a leading scholar on the field. Southampton was also the first university to introduce an option on an intellectual property related subject called ‘Computers and Law’, what is often described today as ‘Information Technology’. The subject was introduced by Steve Saxby, a graduate from the University of Kent, who had been a student of Harry Bloom (who had also supervised Jeremy Phillips).
