The mission of the IBL Center is threefold:

  • To offer speakers and programs that enrich the College of Law's curriculum pertaining to the laws governing entrepreneurship, creativity, competition, technology and corporations. 
  • To provide support to students who seek to build careers in these areas.
  • To engage law students, faculty, and the public in cutting-edge discussions about legal issues raised by technological advancements.

We accomplish this mission by:

  • Hosting academics, practitioners and judges who interact directly with students. 
  • Supporting student organizations such as the Intellectual Property Law Society, IP Moot Court teams, and the Journal of Corporation Law.
  • Providing summer stipends for students doing unpaid legal work in intellectual property, technology, corporate or business law, antitrust, health law, and related fields.  

Areas of law encompassed by the center's mission include:

  • Intellectual Property Law, including copyright, patent, and trademark law;
  • Antitrust and Competition Law;
  • Business Associations and Securities Law.
