The Big Picture
Innovation is critical to 21st-century society. NYU’s curriculum looks at the major areas of law that affect innovation: intellectual property law, including patents, copyrights, and trademarks, and antitrust law and competition policy, including the study of U.S. and European legal systems. Our faculty of law professors, economists, and noted practitioners explore the issues in a variety of settings, from basic courses to advanced seminars to independent directed research projects. At the Colloquium on Innovation Policy, for example, students have the opportunity to listen to scholars from all over the world present their cutting-edge work on innovation policy for discussion and critique.
For those students who wish to pursue specialized graduate study in innovation, NYU Law offers the LL.M. in Competition, Innovation and Information Law.News From Washington Square
