Munich Intellectual Property Summer Program

2018 Summer Program Dates: May 28-June 8

GW Law will be going back to Munich during Summer 2018. Three of the four courses have been scheduled and negotiations are underway for the fourth. Check back at this webpage for more information and to submit your application. Read on for information on the program and the courses to date.

As a complement to its leading intellectual property program in Washington, DC, GW Law will offer a two-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 2018, the program will run from May 28 to June 8. The ABA-accredited program offers four one-credit courses from which participating students must choose two, as well as special lectures and site visits to local IP institutions such as the European Patent Office.  In past years, about 25 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 were also open to LLM students from the Munich Intellectual Property Law Center. This year GW Law will offer four one-credit courses and will look to enroll a diverse body of students as in years past.
