Intellectual Property Clinic

Law 502






This two-semester, six-credit clinic (3 fall, 3 spring) will train students to be creative and effective advocates on behalf of clients who need to protect the words, symbols, names, images or designs that allow consumers to easily identify and authenticate the source of a service or product. Much of the clinic’s work will involve representing independent non-profits, educational institutions, and small businesses before the USPTO.

The clinic’s docket will offer students a mix of experiences in intellectual property law. Concrete tasks will include drafting search and opinion letters on the availability of a trademark for use in commerce and registration at the USPTO as well as reviewing commercial search reports provided by leading trademark search companies on clients’ proposed trademarks.
