The Technology/Intellectual Property clinic is being put on hiatus until the Spring or Fall of 2019.
Spring semester: 3 pass/fail credits
The Technology/Intellectual Property Clinic (TIP Clinic®) is one of the
first law school clinical programs to provide transactional services
exclusively in the areas of patent, trademark and copyright law to
clients who cannot afford to pay private counsel for these services. The
clinic is a natural extension of the College of Law's IP/IT program,
and its mission is "Protecting the Creative Works of Creative Minds." Clients, who are referred to the clinic by attorneys and by former
clinic clients, include a wide range of entrepreneurs, musicians,
artists, authors and inventors who need assistance in protecting their
creations and businesses. You will conduct client interviews, research
facts and law, and strategize how to achieve the clients' goals. You
also counsel clients, draft communications to clients and to third
parties, and draft all necessary documents. Full-time third-year and
part-time fourth-year students with technical and nontechnical
backgrounds are eligible to participate in the clinic.
