UConn School of Law offers students in an LLM program the opportunity to earn a Certificate in Intellectual Property. The certificate program prepares students to participate in the new information economy, drawing on a dynamic intellectual property program and a commitment to international law, financial services and insurance law at the leading public law school in the Northeast. Students enrolled in the Intellectual Property and Information Governance LLM program are not eligible for this certificate.
Students are encouraged to announce their intention to seek a certificate at the beginning of their academic year; no formal application is required. Before graduating, students must submit the “Certificate Studies, Intention to Participate Form” to the registrar’s office. To earn the Certificate in Intellectual Property, LLM candidates must:
- complete 9 credit hours of intellectual property courses,
- fulfill the writing requirement in an approved course or an independent writing project on the subject, and
- achieve a minimum of a B average in their certification courses and writing requirement.
