Certificate(s): High Tech Law
This course surveys the basics of United States intellectual property law, including patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets. This course caters both to students who want a single-course sampler of intellectual property as well as students who intend to pursue a career in intellectual property law. A technical background is not required. Numerous IP electives require this course as a prerequisite, so we encourage students planning to explore the IP curriculum to take this course as early as possible.
Attendance is mandatory. Required texts for the course will be listed online as will the assignment for the first class.
