Intellectual Property Concentration

Intellectual property law is one of the most dynamic fields in the legal profession — for lawyers with and without undergraduate degrees in science. In order to meet the growing demand for lawyers in this area of practice, Pacific McGeorge offers courses in intellectual property law and a specialized curriculum leading to a J.D. degree with an Intellectual Property Concentration. Careers in Intellectual Property Law include:

  • Patent Lawyer
  • Copyright Lawyer
  • Entertainment Lawyer
  • Trademark Lawyer
  • Intellectual Property Litigator
  • Media Lawyer
  • Trademark Examiner
  • Patent Examiner
  • In-house Counsel for movie studios and biotech, publishing, software, and Internet companies
  • Artist's Representative

How to Apply

Apply by submitting the online application, which requires that you attach your resume and Statement of Purpose (at least 200 words on why you want to obtain the concentration and how it fits into your career goals). This application should be submitted at your earliest stages of planning, and in no case may be submitted after the Add/Drop Deadline of your final law school term. Students must schedule an appointment with the Faculty Director to plan their required curriculum and activities.
