To earn a Certificate in Intellectual Property: Arts and Museum Law, a student must complete the 86 semester hours required for the Juris Doctor degree and satisfy all JD requirements. Within the elective course work required for the JD degree, a student must complete at least 15 credit hours from the listed courses and seminars and earn a minimum GPA of 3.20 in the Certificate courses. If a student takes more than one of the non-core elective courses listed below, the student can select which course will count towards the certificate, and the grade in that course will be subject to the minimum 3.20 GPA requirement. Students may apply for only one Certificate. ​​

Previously taught courses, courses offered in other DePaul Colleges, and new courses and seminars that may be added to the curriculum may qualify for the Certificate with approval.  In addition, with approval, students may substitute a different writing seminar or a three-credit independent study for the required writing assignment. Academic credits received from law school journals, including the Journal of Art, Technology and Intellectual Property Law, do not count toward the credits required for the Certificate.
