MSU Law’s nationally recognized Intellectual Property, Information, & Communications Law Program (IPIC) offers one of the most extensive intellectual property (IP) and communications law curriculums in the country.
The program’s full-time faculty members, Adam Candeub, Jennifer Carter-Johnson, Nancy Costello, Daniel Martin Katz, and Sean Pager offer students in-depth coursework in all areas of IP, including copyright, cyberlaw, entertainment, international IP, patent, trademark, and emerging areas in informatics and the law.
The faculty works closely with other scholars at MSU and builds on the university’s internationally recognized strengths in engineering, computer science, agriculture, and communications to provide students with unique interdisciplinary perspectives to their legal studies.
Through its adjunct professors and outreach efforts, IPIC boasts close connections to Michigan’s intellectual property bar, one of the most active in the country—a relationship that has helped launch many of our graduates’ careers.
