Preparing IP professionals

The Center for Intellectual Property Research was founded at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law in 2010. The Center trains students who are passionate about innovation and creativity and who seek an intensive experience in all aspects of intellectual property law including patent, trademark and unfair competition, copyright, design and information policy. The Center’s comprehensive curriculum features nearly two dozen courses, colloquia, and seminars in all areas of intellectual property and information policy. More than 100 students participate in some aspect of the Center’s work in a typical year.
