LL.M. Science, Technology & Intellectual Property Specialization

The Science, Technology & Intellectual Property (IP) specialization prepares students to practice in the intellectual property field. UC Hastings’ connections with Silicon Valley’s technology companies and San Francisco’s vibrant intellectual property firms uniquely position it to offer perspectives on all aspects of the practice. LL.M. students enjoy working closely with our Center for Innovation and LexLab in addition to taking courses taught by practitioners from boutique and multi-national firms. Many students participate in the Startup Legal Garage, which has a track specially designed for LL.M. students.
