DePaul’s LL.M. in Intellectual Property Law is regarded as one of the most extensive programs in the country, and the Center for Intellectual Property Law & Information Technology (CIPLIT®), which oversees the program, is an innovative leader in the field. With more than 30 course offerings, the program addresses the need for specialized training in intellectual property and information technology law. LL.M. candidates must complete the required courses and electives and earn 24 semester hours to earn the degree.
Courses must be selected from the LLM in Intellectual Property courses. The LLM program may be completed on either a full- or part-time basis but must be completed within four years.
The American Bar Association mandates that no credit be given for intellectual property courses taken before a student is accepted into the LLM program. Credits earned as part of a JD program do not count toward the LLM.
