Sync Your Career

A legal career in Intellectual Property is at your fingertips. Be a part of this rapidly expanding field.

Intellectual Property LL.M. program

The program is designed both for attorneys with scientific or engineering background seeking to gain the skills necessary to practice patent law, including succeeding on the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's Registration Examination, and for attorneys with non-technical backgrounds seeking to become proficient in copyright, trademark, licensing, and e-commerce issues. The web-based courses are faculty-led and utilize an online course management system. Students participate in classes in a synchronous online format, giving the student a live, virtual classroom experience. Using a webcam, headset, and microphone, students can see and hear the professor and the professor can interact with students during the session. Classes are held on nights and weekends in Eastern Standard Time (EST). The student must be on his or her computer during class time.
