Why it is relevant for ...
[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] [ Transactional ] as a Key Elective : IP lawyers tend to represent clients whose intellectual property is a key asset of their business. They need to understand the special nature of intellectual property in a business context - - how it creates value, how it is protected and exchanged, and the role it plays in a competitive economy. Students interested in an IP practice should choose one or more courses that consider intellectual property in a business context. This is an advanced course that focuses on the special legal issues present at the intersection of antitrust and intellectual property. Students who would like a more general overview of antitrust law should consider taking Antitrust instead.
