FACULTY OF LAW
Intellectual Property Law Program
The Intellectual Property Law Institute (I.P.L.I.) was created in 1987 through the efforts of the State Bar of Michigan and the law faculties of The University of Detroit Mercy, Wayne State University, and the University of Windsor.
Intellectual property is one of the most innovative, exciting, challenging, and rewarding areas of the law. The I.P.L.I. is dedicated to providing basic and advanced legal education and furthering knowledge, scholarship, and research in the law governing the richly diverse fields of intellectual property: patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets and know-how, computers and related technology, communications and media entertainment, technology transfer, trade regulation, and the arts.
The primary purpose of the I.P.L.I. is to offer an exceptional and rich curriculum for students and lawyers in the field of intellectual property. I.P.L.I. courses have the advantage of sharing the resources of three law schools, as well as the experience and expertise of practicing members of the Michigan Bar Association. In particular, each course deals with appropriate American and Canadian jurisprudence.
