Courses of Study

Our expansive intellectual property law curriculum offers a range of courses and seminars examining the economic, ethical, and social issues arising from the creation and ownership of intangible assets. The LL.M. in Intellectual Property Law Program curriculum consists of the following classes:

1) Three of the following four foundational classes:

2) Intellectual Property Workshop Seminar (spring semester, three credits)

3) Foreign-Trained Lawyers must also take “Introduction to American Law,” and the “Legal Research and Writing Seminar,” each for two credits in the fall semester.


While the required “core” courses are offered annually, electives change each year as new professors join the faculty, some take sabbaticals, others visit and new courses are added.
