The program equips students with a sufficient grounding in legal theory and practical skills to pursue gainful employment in the intellectual property field in the United States or abroad.

Patent and Trademark Practitioners are particularly welcomed to apply for admission to our LLM in IP and Technology Law Program. The program is open to not only those with first degrees in law or have completed in a foreign country the university-based legal education required to take the equivalent of the bar examination in that country, but also those who are qualified to practice law in a country, or the equivalent thereof or otherwise deemed sufficiently qualified as determined by our LLM admissions committee.

The program requires completion of 25 units over two consecutive full-time semesters of study at the USF School of Law (August through May). The program may also be completed through part-time study with permission of the director.

Our Applications Procedures provide more information about how to apply.
