Areas of Concentration

Intellectual Property:

Intellectual Property is one of the fastest growing practice areas globally. The Intellectual Property area of concentration is designed to introduce students to the major substantive areas likely to be encountered in practice.

Students choosing to concentrate in Intellectual Property must complete the following courses:

Course NameCredit Hours
Copyright Law3
E-Commerce Law3
Intellectual Property I3
Intellectual Property II: Advanced Trademark Practice & Litigation2
Patent Litigation1
Patent Law & Drafting3
Intellectual Property Capstone**1 or 2

The culminating experience in this area of concentration is the Intellectual Property Capstone.

This capstone course will focus on skills development, which will provide students the opportunity to both learn how to conduct an appropriate client analysis as well as apply substantive law to the drafting, reviewing and negotiating of intellectual property-related agreements.

Students must also complete four hours from among the following courses:

Course NameCredit Hours
Antitrust Law2
Consumer Protection Law3

**A prerequisite to taking the Intellectual Property Capstone is either a grade of at least a B in Intellectual Property or a cumulative GPA of at least a 2.5 at the end of the first year of study.

Students who do not meet this requirement will still be able to participate in an independent study in lieu of the capstone. This will provide the student with a similar experience to the capstone.
