Each student in the IP Concentration must complete an experiential component to the concentration. This may consist of an externship in a related industry or advocacy placement, a moot court or litigation skills course. The units from the course or experience satisfying this requirement may, but need not, be counted toward the 16 units when the course is listed on the Concentration requirements list.
The following may be used for the experiential component of the concentration:
- Fashion Law Clinic
- Entertainment Law Practicum
- Entertainment Moot Court
- Federal Court Externship*
- IP-related Externship or Internship
- Litigating a Copyright Case Seminar
- Right of Publicity Seminar
- Any LLS-sponsored IP-related moot court team**
* An externship must be pre-approved by Concentration Faculty Advisor to count toward the concentration.
** Loyola currently does not field teams to any of the national IP-law moot courts, but in any year in which we did, participation on such a team would meet the experiential requirement for the concentration. Those extramural competitions include the AIPLA Giles Rich Patent Law Moot Court Competition, the Cardozo-BMI Entertainment Law Moot Court, and the INTA Saul Lefkowitz Moot Court Competition
