Cooley Law School’s intellectual property (IP) law curriculum has earned a top ranking in a recent independent report published by researchers at the William Mitchell Law School. The Mitchell Report on Intellectual Property Curricula ranks the strength of the IP law curricula at all 222 U.S. law schools. Cooley’s IP curriculum ranked first nationally in IP courses and second in number of IP course categories.
David C. Berry, a Cooley professor and director of Cooley’s graduate program in Intellectual Property Law, noted that, “IP is a diverse and growing area of law practice that is essential to the continued revitalization of the regional and national economies. To carry out our ‘practice-ready’ philosophy, Cooley has developed an extensive IP curriculum, including an IP concentration, a Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree program, and a Joint J.D./LL.M. degree program that taps the expertise of dedicated IP faculty and practicing adjunct faculty. The IP program uses synchronous, web-based and on-campus classes, so that students across Michigan and graduate students across the globe can participate in our courses.”
