Trademark Law (Advanced) | L4112
This seminar will focus on complex practical and legal issues confronted by today's trademark practitioners, ranging from brand protection strategies to litigating equitable relief claims for trademark infringement. The course will also cover how trademark principles are being applied to the internet and e-commerce. The course will focus on U.S. trademark law, but will include exposure to the aspects of international trademark law that are most frequently encountered by U.S. trademark practitioners. The course will call for students to participate in hands-on exercises, such as developing a new brand and arguing a preliminary injunction motion. The course requires a basic familiarity with trademark law, but the specific Trademark Law class is not a prerequisite.
