Intellectual Property Law

With emerging technologies, the growth of e-commerce, the rise of global markets and innovation as an essential component to prospering economies, Intellectual Property Law is one of the most dynamic-and rapidly changing-fields of legal practice today. The areas of trademark, copyright, trade secret, patent and licensing continue to grow and require attorneys who are creative and critical thinkers.

The Intellectual Property curriculum at Washburn University School of Law has expanded as rapidly as the field, adding courses as needed to meet the changing practice environment. Students will be exposed to a broad curriculum -from classes on copyright, trademark, and patent law to art law, patent prosecution and global intellectual property enforcement law.

Associate Professor
Patricia Judd
Professor Judd is a founding co-chair of the Junior Intellectual Property Scholars' Association (JIPSA), launched in September. The association will provide informal opportunities for junior scholars from across the nation and beyond to exchange ideas regarding scholarship and teaching in the field of intellectual property law. The idea has been extraordinarily well-received.. Washburn Law will host the inaugural JIPSA annual meeting in late spring or early summer 2014. The meeting is designed to provide a forum for robust scholarly discussion as participants transition out of the spring semester and into the summer writing season.
