Session Organization and Schedule

The program will consist of two two-week sessions. The first session will run June 29 through July 10, 2015 and the second session from July 13 through July 24, 2015. Classes will be held Monday through Thursday. The program will also include off-site visits to IP related locations such as the European Patent Office, BMW, GEMA, or the DPMA.

Final examinations are scheduled for July 10 and July 24, 2015, for the first and second session respectively. Please note that some courses may require final papers or writing assignments rather than final examinations and that professors reserve the right to adjust the examination date. The method of evaluation for each course is indicated in parentheses after the description of that course below.

Students may participate in one or both sessions; an admissions preference may be given to students who choose to participate in both sessions. Students may enroll in a maximum of two courses per session. Please note that if you plan to apply for financial aid, federal regulations require that you be enrolled for at least 3 credits over the course of the summer. We reserve the right to limit enrollment in a course due to seating capacity. Affected students will be informed if this becomes necessary.

The exact course schedule and course description for Summer 2015 will be posted shortly.
