Course Outline: A seminar course to study the process of writing a large work and to study advanced topics in intellectual property or information law, typically within trade secrets, patents, trademark, copyright, or information law topics such as privacy, data security, licensing, cyberlaw or internet law. The study is through authorship of a seminar paper that meets the Law Center's upper level writing requirement.
Topics should be chosen and approved during the break between the Fall and Spring semesters, so that the mainline research can be done during the break. The paper will be due in four finished, graded parts: approximately one month, two months, and three months into the semester; and the last submittal of the final paper, due at the beginning of the spring exam period. More details about grading structure and class meetings are available at the course web page.
