The University Of Connecticut School of Law has announced that it will launch an LL.M. in Intellectual Property Law and Information Governance in 2016.
The program will address emerging topics in IP law globally.
"The world faces a pressing demand for lawyers to guide innovation across a wide array of industries, from pharmaceuticals and software to publishing and mass entertainment, as well as a need for expertise to carry out policy and regulatory work in government and private organizations," according to Law School Dean Timothy Fisher.
UConn has offered a Certificate in Intellectual Property to JD candidates since 2001.
To apply for the new LL.M., applicants should have a law degree from a law school in the US or an accredited law school in another country. International students can complete the program in two or three semesters, while US students can take up to five years to finish the course.
The new program next fall, pending ABA acquiescence.
