Intellectual Property Law Society
Intellectual Property (IP) law issues can affect virtually anyone or any organization, including business entities, artists, inventors, programmers, researchers, and web designers. Major areas of IP law include copyright, patent, and trademark, and touch science and technology, the arts and literature, and small and large businesses. The reach of IP law is expanding in a global economy, and the creation, management, and transfer of IP assets are growing more complex. Such growth is accompanied by a considerable need for Notre Dame to become more active in the education, research, and practice of IP law. IPLS aims to foster leadership in, promote intellectual curiosity about, and encourage dialogue on IP law by providing a forum for intellectual inquiry. The Society challenges its members to engage educators and practitioners as well as each other in learning about the various areas of IP law. By hosting professionals in academia, government, and the private sector at the Law School, the group and its members seek to stay current with IP law developments and learn of available resources that may be valuable both during school and following graduation. For more information, visit the IPLS web site at or e-mail Navid Fanaeian, President.

ILS sponsors many events to foster interest in the field including an annual symposium at the Law School for distinguished visitors on current issues in international law.
