Intellectual Property

Students in our intellectual property concentration investigate key issues related to patents, trademarks, copyrighting and trade secrets.

These students develop a firm grounding in a variety of fields that intellectual property law affects by exploring topics such as computer and Internet law, patent litigation, sports law and cybersecurity law. They also can participate in an externship within a law firm or corporate legal department to gain practical experience regarding the types of intellectual property work that lawyers do, and to gain insight in regard to protecting the creativity of artists, musicians and inventors.

Students in the IP concentration also can utilize externships to gain exposure to Connecticut’s extensive base of biomedical, aerospace and entertainment industries, which are fertile sectors for lawyers who specialize in IP law. Through such an externship opportunity, the student can learn IP law in a hands-on manner, while contributing to social needs at the intersection of law, the arts and technology.
