IU McKinney Law to Offer Concentration in Intellectual Property Law
A new Concentration in Intellectual Property Law is available to students at IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law. The concentration is available to qualified students graduating in December 2012 or later.
“Because IP law is one of our natural strengths, it makes eminent sense for our IP Center to offer this Concentration,” said Dean Gary Roberts. “This is one more way our students can demonstrate to employers a broad knowledge base in a particular area of law upon graduation.”
The executive director of the Center for Intellectual Property Law and Innovation, Professor John Schaibley, agreed.
“The new Concentration in Intellectual Property Law provides official recognition for our students who take full advantage of the IP Center’s extensive curriculum, taught by its four full time and 15 adjunct faculty members, who provide our IP students with an unsurpassed education on cutting edge intellectual property issues,” he said. “With over 20 IP courses, our IP curriculum combines history and theory with real-world challenges, focusing on practical issues of current and anticipated future importance for protection of IP rights. Students who meet the rigorous requirements of the IP Concentration deserve special recognition for their achievement and expertise. The IP Concentration will aid students seeking employment in IP and related fields, representing the law school’s determination that the student has successfully completed a rigorous course of studies providing a sound foundation for practicing intellectual property law.”
