Description: (Formerly DCL 574) PREQUISITE: A course in the Intellectual Property & Communications Law Concentration or by permission of the Instructor. NOTE: This course cannot be used for summer graduation or for the July Bar Exam certification. Every summer, the Intellectual Property & Communications Law Program and the Institute of International Agriculture jointly sponsor a one-week internship program in intellectual property rights with a focus on technology transfer, use, and management with the context of GATT/WTO. This program provides hands-on training in the day-to-day handling of intellectual property matters in university, business, and other settings. More information about the program is available at http://www.iia.msu.edu/ipr-course05.htm. Participants are required to attend ALL sessions of the internship program and complete a seminar paper. They are also required to submit an outline, a rough draft, and a final draft and maintain regular contact with the instructor. This course may fulfill the ULWR requirement. As this course is a fee-based seminar offered by the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, MSU Law scholarship awards cannot be used for this course.
