The U.S. economy has shifted from a manufacturing base to one increasingly reliant on information and knowledge, or what is known as intellectual property.
As Congress passes intellectual property (IP) laws and the U.S. Supreme Court takes up IP cases, the need for attorneys and legal services specializing in this area keeps growing.
The Center for Intellectual Property, established in 2015, brings together faculty, students and alumni. The center is a knowledge incubator for education and service, and connects the academic and professional communities in IP law. The center's Intellectual Property Advisory Board partners with the intellectual property community to support faculty and students in research, education and community service and provide a platform for policy and legislative proposals.
Students learn from a clear, integrated and streamlined course of study in IP law. The innovative curriculum blends theory and practice-based skills. Students develop substantive knowledge, practical skills and professional judgment.
Students can take classes toward a Certificate in Intellectual Property Law or an LL.M. with a concentration in IP law. Students learn to apply legal concepts in diverse intellectual property settings, including litigation, transactional work and prosecution.
The Center for Intellectual Property offers programs and events for students that complement the integrated course of study to develop substantive knowledge, hands-on experience, practical skills and professional judgment. These programs and events are designed for networking and community engagement to put students in direct contact with firms, corporations and other future employment opportunities in the field of intellectual property law.
