(LAWF-4042) - 2 UNITS

This is intended to expose J.D. students to cutting edge and theoretical intellectual property (IP) scholarship. Top IP scholars will submit works-in-progress for student commentary and visit the course to give talks. Students are expected to read all papers carefully in advance, prepare written questions for each colloquium session, and write five 3-5 page reaction papers over the course of the semester. Grades will be based on the reaction papers, written questions, and participation in the discussions. Admission is by permission of the instructor; a student interested in enrolling should submit a letter discussing why he or she is interested, a resume and a transcript to Prof. Rothman. Prior advanced coursework in any IP subject is useful but not required.
