Licensing and Technology Transfer Law (3 OR 2)

This is a practical course that focuses on the content of intellectual property license agreements and the purpose each provision serves in the agreements. The main goal is to provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to enable you to draft, negotiate and constructively comment on intellectual property license agreements. Throughout the semester, the course is structured to reiterate the importance of understanding client and counter-party interests and leveraging this understanding into drafting and negotiating skill sets. You will be provided the business context impacting the interests of the parties involved in an intellectual property license agreement.

The class time will be devoted to important concepts and ideas introduced through discussion of actual agreements. The significant interplay among drafting and negotiating will constantly be highlighted through in-class exercises, designed to enhance your learning experience through group discussion. The course is appropriate for both students who plan to enter intellectual property law practice and students who anticipate a career in other legal fields such as business law. A technical proficiency in science or engineering is neither required nor favored.

In Fall 2018 this course will be offered as a three credit exam course only.

NOTE: This course is taught on the University of Maryland College Park campus.
