IP Courses

Our Program’s curriculum is designed to allow students to explore their individual interests in IP. Students are strongly encouraged to take the core IP courses and then further their knowledge through advanced courses in specific areas of patent; trademark and copyright; privacy and data security; and IP and entrepreneurship. Both core and advanced courses are complemented by related courses that give our students a well-rounded perspective on the multitude of legal issues they will encounter when they practice IP law, create policy, and advise their clients on business strategies.
