LL.M. Degree—Intellectual Property Track
Integral to the Center has been the establishment of the LL.M. track in Intellectual Property Law. Students who already hold the J.D. degree or equivalent, or are admitted to practice of law in any worldwide jurisdiction, are invited to apply for admission to this track of the law school's Master of Laws Degree Program. Taken full time, a student can complete the degree in one academic year, and at least half of the credits earned will be in courses related to IP law. Students will also write a thesis under the guidance of a faculty member. For more complete information about eligibility, deadlines, requirements, and other details, visit one of the links below:
J.D. Program and IP Law
Enriched program options, courses, and other opportunities benefit J.D. students as well as LL.M. students. J.D. students are welcome in nearly all courses that are open to LL.M. students, and the growing array of instruction and research opportunities, conferences, internships, and other initiatives will allow all students to explore interests and career possibilities in all aspects of IP law. For information about admission to and completion of the J.D. program, visit the McKinney Admissions: Program Information page.
Concentration in Intellectual Property Law (proposed IP Law Graduate Certificate)
Students at the IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law graduating in May 2013 or later now have the option of obtaining a new concetration in Intellectual Property Law. The IP concentration will be awarded to students who complete a minimum of 15 credits in IP courses, including three core classes, as well as completing an IP research paper, and maintaining a 3.2 GPA in the IP courses applied to the Concentration. The requirements for the new Concentration are identical to the requirements of a proposed new Graduate Certificate in Intellectual Property Law for which the Law School is requesting approval from Indiana University. (A Copy of the proposal is attached.) If and when IU approves the Graduate Certificate in IP Law, the Graduate Certificate will replace the IP Concentration. If IU approval of the Graduate Certificate in IP Law occurs in time, qualified students graduating in May 2013 applying for the Concentration will be awarded the Graduate Certificate.
