GW Law Munich Intellectual Property and Information Law Summer Program

2020 Summer Program Dates:  May 14-30

GW Law will be going back to Munich this summer.  Read on for information on the program and the courses.

As a complement to its leading intellectual property program in Washington, DC, GW Law will offer a two-and-a-half-week intellectual property law program in Munich, Germany, a vibrant city less than an hour from the Alps, known as Europe's "Intellectual Property Capital."  In the summer of 2020, the program will run from May 14 to May 30, 2020. The ABA-accredited program offers four one-credit elective courses from which participating students must choose two, as well as mandatory course which includes special lectures and site visits to local IP institutions such as the European Patent Office, and look to enrolling a diverse body of students as in years past. In past years, 12 to 20 students (including students from GW, other US ABA-approved law schools, and students from foreign law schools) participated in the program each summer. The courses offered are also open to LLM students from the Munich Intellectual Property Law Center.
