Intellectual Property: Patents

Current Offerings

Intellectual Property: Patents (4010): This intermediate-level patent law course builds on material covered in Introduction to Intellectual Property (which is recommended but not required).

We will also emphasize policy analysis of the patent system, including the effect of patent doctrine on innovation and inequality. The course is designed to be useful both for non-patent-specialists and for those planning a career in the field. No technical background is required. Elements used in grading: Class participation, attendance, and final exam.
