As a complement to its leading intellectual property program in Washington, DC, GW Law offers 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 2017, the program will run from May 29 to June 9. 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.
