MSU College of Law

The Masters of Jurisprudence (M.J.) in Intellectual Property

The M.J. in intellectual property is a unique, 24-credit degree that offers interested individuals a thorough background in all major aspects of intellectual property: patent, copyright, and trademark, as well as trade secret, licensing, and privacy law. MSU’s curriculum is particularly focused on how intellectual property intersects with the internet law and the growing role of legal computation—and offers study on how IP regimes work in the international context as well.

The degree is not intended for those who aspire to practice law. Rather, the degree is designed for individuals whose business or academic careers bring them into frequent contact with IP issues. With the ever-growing importance of intellectual property in our knowledge economy, the M.J. offers training useful in a variety of roles. Explore our course offerings.

Tuition: The total cost of the program is $16,000.
