This course provides students with an opportunity to experience trademark law practice. After reviewing the fundamentals of trademark law, students will work through a series of simulations of trademark practice activities and proceedings, including selecting trademarks and conducting due diligence, registering trademarks, drafting a complaint, use of survey experts, preliminary injunction briefing and argument, settlement conference, summary judgment briefing and argument, and trial proceedings.

Students are required to have taken Intellectual Property Law. Enrollment in the class will be limited to 15 students. Students will be evaluated based on their performance on the simulations. Real-time attendance at all sessions is expected.
