The LL.M. Intellectual Property Law Concentration Program will offer LL.M. students advanced exposure to intellectual property law and help prepare students for practice in the area. The concentration is awarded upon successful completion of several intellectual property law related courses and a substantial research paper on an intellectual property law topic.
