Center for Intellectual Property Law & Markets

The Center for Intellectual Property Law & Markets trains students in the fundamentals of intellectual property (IP) laws and in the ways clients use IP rights to compete in real-world markets. USD’s focus on the role of IP rights in markets distinguishes it from other, more traditional IP centers. It also provides a forum where lawyers, clients, judges and policymakers can share ideas about IP doctrines and policies. The center’s policy workshops also provide opportunities for students and community members to engage in discussions about current IP policy issues, focusing on the intersection between economic analysis and IP policy.
