306: Intellectual Property Colloquium

Credit Hours



This a unique course offered once a year to a select group of students from Loyola and Chicago-Kent. Enrolled students read and discuss draft articles of nationally renowned professors in the field of intellectual property; the articles are typically draft law review articles. The discussions are focused on helping the professors to refine and improve their articles, such that a strong foundation of intellectual property is expected, even though there is no official pre-requisite. This course meets every week, but the students only meet in person roughly half the time, with the other half of the sessions done by videoconference. Three of the in-person classes will be at Chicago-Kent; for those days, the class will begin at 4:10 pm and end by 5:50pm to allow students adequate travel time. There is no final exam or research project required for this class. Instead, students are required to attend and actively participate in all classes. Students are selected based on an application that is available at www.chicagoip.com.
