Read on for information about the program.

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." The ABA-accredited program offers four one-credit elective courses from which participating students must choose two, as well as a mandatory course that 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. The courses offered are also open to LLM students from the Munich Intellectual Property Law Center.
