LLM in IP & Technology Law Curriculum

The Intellectual Property and Technology Law Program begins with an orientation week for foreign students. Foreign students will begin the American Legal System courses and become acquainted with the law school, law library, computer center, and other university facilities.

During orientation foreign students will also be instructed in basic research skills, meet with the program director to finalize their course of study, complete registration, and explore San Francisco with other LLM students. Some assistance is provided for locating permanent living accommodations and answering visa questions.

Students in the IP Program must satisfactorily complete a minimum of 25, and not more than 30, course units of credit, including an advanced seminar in intellectual property and a minimum of six credits in IP core courses.
