Curriculum

The Center for Law, Technology, and the Arts curriculum is rich and diverse. We offer a wide range of courses and seminars designed to prepare students who wish to practice in the area of law and technology or law and the arts, or who simply want a basic doctrinal and theoretical foundation.

FIRST-YEAR COURSES
In addition to the foundation courses in the first-year curriculum, our first-year students may select an elective during their second semester. Our first-year Intellectual Property Survey course introduces students early in their law school careers to the fundamentals of patent law, copyright law, trademark law , and trade secrets and offers them an opportunity to make an informed decision on whether to pursue advanced course work in law and technology or law and the arts.

UPPER-LEVEL COURSES
There are four core courses Ė Copyright Law, Cyberlaw, Patent Law, and Trademark Law. These are gateway courses to the upper-level curriculum. Students interested in pursuing careers or advanced study in law and technology or law and the arts can design their course work based upon their goals. The LTA director and other faculty who teach in the Centerís curriculum are always happy to meet one-on-one with students to help plan the course of study consistent with each studentís interests and career objectives.
