New Day, New Challenges in IP Law
With a law degree and experience working for a startup in her native Germany, Sophia Mangold says a USF LLM was key to landing a job with San Francisco-based AppDirect.
USF’s LLM in Intellectual Property and Technology Law program provides a thorough exposure to American, international, and comparative intellectual property law.
USF's faculty and students have been involved in the IP and technology fields for decades.
Students in the IP and technology LLM program come from diverse backgrounds, including law and science, and many have years of experience in the science and technology fields. The program is open to those with first degrees in law or who have a similar degree or are qualified to practice law in a foreign country. Patent and trademark practitioners are especially encouraged to participate in the program.
Much of what I’ve achieved in my career is thanks to USF's excellent professors who gave me a sound foundation in intellectual property law, which is key to my role as the head of Chile’s patent and trademark office.” Maximiliano Santa-Cruz LLM ’02 Director General of Chile's National Institute of Industrial Property Santiago, Chile”
