Master in the Study of Law (M.S.L.)

Can you imagine yourself arguing copyright issues raised by museum photographs of an artistic image in the public domain? Researching how antitrust law can limit the exercise of patent rights post issuance? Or preparing your company for the global repercussions of the pending case in the U.S. Supreme Court that could become a milestone in U.S. patent law?

Our graduate degree program in Intellectual Property and Technology Law —  a Master in the Study of Law (M.S.L.) — focuses on the application of law and public policy in regards to creativity, invention and innovation.

The program offers instruction in all aspects of intellectual property law, computer-related and cyberspace law, and entertainment and mass communication law. The courses are rigorous, challenging and reflect contemporary legal issues that affect the law as technology is rapidly integrated into our society.

Graduate degrees in Intellectual Property and Technology Law are offered to both lawyers and non-lawyers from the United States and abroad. Students who do not have a law degree may earn a Master in the Study of Law degree by completing 30 credits of coursework on a full-time or part-time basis.
