The primary emphasis of this course is on researching and presenting, in both oral and written form, an in depth scholarly analysis of an important contemporary issue related to intellectual property law. The oral discussions will take place in a weekly colloquium attended by the tenured and adjunct faculty of the IP Institute, as well as invited guests from the local IP community. Each week, a student will be paired with an interested faculty member to present alternative viewpoints regarding the selected contemporary topic in the broad field of intellectual property law (i.e. patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets). Selections of topics will be made by the Faculty Coordinator, in consultation with the IP Institute faculty. Grades based on weekly student and faculty lead discussions, and a final graded scholarly paper. This paper may be used to satisfy the long paper requirement.
