Intellectual Property Program

“The College of Law’s Intellectual Property Law Society provides many opportunities to hear about real-life IP lawyers, at the top of their field, and all of the advice they have to offer, which is invaluable.”

Saba Daneshvar (J.D. ’15)

From patents and trademarks to copyrights and trade secrets, all legal forms of intellectual property are becoming increasingly important to artists, writers, inventors and other innovators who take ideas from conception to reality.

The Georgia State Law Intellectual Property Program is an area of excellence for the college. Our professors and extensive curriculum provide a strong foundation for students interested in pursuing careers in intellectual property or those wanting a general background in this increasingly important field. Graduates pursue work in patent law, entertainment law, copyrights, trademarks, licensing, cyberlaw and e-commerce. We also have business and medial professionals who add IP expertise to broaden their skills within their existing profession.

The Intellectual Property Advisory Board, comprising Georgia State Law graduates and friends, invites students and alumni to pitch in for their annual idea-sharing and networking events. These include the Corporate IP Roundtable and Corporate IP Institute. Please consider donating your time to a program or making a contribution to support IP studies at Georgia State Law.
