Credits: 3

Course Areas: Intellectual Property and Information Law 

Time: 4:00p-5:30p  MWLocation: TUII-144 

Course Outline: Writing on specific topics in patent, trademark, copyright, and trade secret law. Topics should be chosen and approved before the December break, so that the mainline research can be done during the break. The paper will be due in three finished, roughly equal graded parts: one month, two months, and three months into the semester; and a graded final push-together of these parts, due by the last day of classes.

Course Syllabus: This is a writing seminar. Each student chooses a topic in intellectual property law, subject to the instructor’s approval. This should optimally be done prior to the inter-semester break, so that the break period can be used to do the basic research on the topic, and make any needed changes to the topic or its scope before the spring semester begins.
