Real World IP Lawmaking

SLN #: 12951
Course Prefix: LAW-691
Course Section: 014
Credit Hours: 1
Instructor(s): Halaby

Course Description:
Through the lens of real world experience, with a focus on recent and current events, this one-hour seminar will use the platform of intellectual property protection to examine the processes by which law is made, and policy implemented, by legislators, courts, administrative agencies, and private actors. The law and policy “soup” these participants stir often yields unexpected — and sometimes, undesirable — results. We will see how and why. Intellectual property law aside, this course will teach lessons that can be cross-applied to other subject areas, in law school and thereafter.

There are no prerequisites for this course. Students need no grounding — or intention to pursue further study or a career — in any aspect of intellectual property law, in order to enjoy and learn from the course. Course materials will consist primarily of recent court decisions and news reports; no books or other materials need be purchased.
