McCarthy Institute for Intellectual Property and Technology Law

The technology revolution has made intellectual property, cyberlaw, and other high tech-related issues the hottest topics at American law schools.

The McCarthy Institute for Intellectual Property and Technology Law serves as the center of USF's intellectual property and technology program, which includes a distinguished faculty, internationally focused curriculum, innovative clinical offerings, as well as a vibrant student organization and nationally-recognized student publication.

USF's faculty and students have been involved in the IP field for decades. Professor J. Thomas McCarthy, for whom the institute is named, has served on the faculty for 35 years. An intellectual property law pioneer, McCarthy is recognized as a preeminent expert in the field.

USF's Intellectual Property and Technology Certificate Program is built on the same foundation that supports all of the law school's work—a faculty of dedicated teachers and accomplished scholars committed to quality education.
