Cardozo's Intellectual Property + Information Law Program (IP+IL) offers a rich curriculum of basic and advanced courses (see list below), providing students the option to pursue a concentration or Master of Laws (LL.M.) in intellectual property. 

IP Concentration

Cardozo students may graduate with a concentration in intellectual property by taking at least five courses in the intellectual property curriculum, and at least two of the three core IP courses: copyright law, trademark law and patent law. The concentration will be noted on their official transcript, signaling a measure of expertise in the field.

LL.M. in Intellectual Property

Cardozo is one of a few U.S. law schools offering a Master of Laws in Intellectual Property (LL.M.) and students may write an optional thesis with the support of a faculty advisor. We offer the degree in both full-time and part-time programs, which can be completed in one, two or three years. Admission is selective and open to graduates of American and foreign law schools.
