Lectures: 1 session / week, 1.5 hours / session
Readings will be taken mostly from the statutes and the case law of intellectual property. Students will be expected to read the materials carefully prior to class and to be prepared to discuss them in class. (Short preparation exercises will be assigned.) There will also be student presentations of cases that are not assigned to the class as a whole. There will be no term papers or exams. However, to receive passing grades, students will be expected to attend regularly, and to prepare for and participate actively in class discussions. If it should become necessary for a student to miss a particular class, he or she should make appropriate make-up arrangements with the instructor ahead of time.
