This course is designed to provide in-house counsel, less experienced intellectual property attorneys and general practitioners with a solid grounding in trademark law.


The faculty will offer a basic understanding of the nature of trademarks through trademark searches, federal registration, international issues such as the Madrid Protocol, what constitutes infringement, handling disputes, and issues of dilution.
