The purpose of the Center for Intellectual Property Research is to support the study of all aspects of intellectual property law and related fields, including patent, trademark and unfair competition, copyright, and information policy.
Technology has become the dominant force in the global economy. Every lawyer needs to understand how technology intersects with the law, and in no area is that intersection more salient than in intellectual property law. Toward that end, the Center promotes a dialogue on intellectual property law among scholars, judges, policymakers, practitioners, and students.
