Intellectual Property: Advanced Topics

  • Typically offered every other year

Limit: 15 students.

The course affords students the opportunity to delve deeply into intellectual property topics. The seminar will be organized around areas of interest for the students enrolled and may include topics in any of the intellectual property areas (Copyright, Patent, Trademark, and Trade Secrets). In addition to reading and discussing class materials, each student is required to research and write an analytical paper on a topic of their choosing. Students are required to rewrite their papers in response to comments on their initial paper submissions. Students may thus satisfy the Capstone writing requirement through this seminar. Each student will also be responsible for leading a discussion during one or more class sessions. Class attendance, participation in discussion, and leading discussion will form a part of the student’s grade for the course.
