Intellectual Property and Innovation Law Concentration Pathways

The Intellectual Property and Innovation Law Concentration offers several different pathways, or tracks.  Each of these is voluntary rather than mandatory.  Each student enrolled in the Concentration may choose one of these paths, none of them, or a blend of courses, depending on their goals and interests.  The pathways are offered here to guide students who ask:  what courses should I take, if I am interested in “X”? 

No matter which track a student pursues, a student who completes the Concentration’s requirements will be recognized with the Intellectual Property and Innovation Law Concentration at graduation.
