2014 Summer Session on Intellectual PropertyEach summer, American University Washington College of Law’s renowned intellectual property program offers a unique selection of courses in two policymaking centers, Washington D.C. and Geneva, Switzerland. The ABA-accredited programs are designed for current law students as well as practitioners. Courses are offered on an a la carte basis, or may be combined into concentrations to recieve special Certificates of Completion.
The Washington program begins with a broad introductory course – Introduction to International Intellectual Property – which is an appropriate entry point for those who have not taken an introduction to intellectual property, or who are looking for an introduction to the international dimension of the field.
The Geneva program is the only ABA Accredited law school program featuring international intellectual property course work at the World Intellectual Property Organization and the World Trade Organization.
U.S. law students may apply with their home institutions for academic credit for any of the courses. Academic credit may also be available for foreign law school students at schools that have partnerships with WCL. Courses are also eligible for continuing legal education credits (CLE) or for a Certificate of Completion.
