Miloš Novović is a doctoral fellow at the University of Oslo, Faculty of Law. He is also a fellow of the Stanford-Vienna Transatlantic Technology Law Forum, and was a visiting scholar at the George Washington University Law School.

Miloš graduated from University of Montenegro Faculty of Law in 2010, having received several awards as the best student of law during the course of his studies. After graduating, he started working for the United Nations Development Programme, helping Montenegrin government manage development projects funded by the European Commission. Soon, he received a Fulbright scholarship, and went on to graduate with highest honors from the George Washington University School of Law's LL.M. programme in intellectual property law. Afterwards, he returned to Montenegro, where he started working as an expert associate for compliance affairs in one of the leading Montenegrin banks.

In 2013, Miloš started working as a doctoral research fellow at the Department of Private Law. His research topic is focused on licensing of user-generated content: it analyzes the copyright licensing clauses found in the user agreements of major online companies – like Google, Facebook, Twitter – in an attempt to determine in which ways these companies can use user content.


Miloš is lecturing in several courses, including International Commercial Law, International Commercial Arbitration, Intellectual Property in Information Society and Comparative Private Law.
