Intellectual Property Institute

The mission of the Intellectual Property Institute at the University of Richmond School of Law is to maintain a dynamic and respected center for the study of contemporary intellectual property issues, to increase curricular and other learning opportunities available to law students interested in intellectual property law, and to encourage widespread awareness and understanding of the role that intellectual property plays in fostering a creative and innovative culture.

Founded in 2004, the IP Institute has grown to include four full-time IP professors, a curriculum of more than a dozen courses, and a clinic focusing on the transactional side of IP law. The Institute also offers a certificate in IP, making Richmond Law one the few law schools that provide such an opportunity to its students.
