International Professional Certificate Summer Program Understanding U.S. Intellectual Property Law

Stanford Law School offers an international summer program in U.S. intellectual property law annually in August. The LLM Program in European and International Business Law established a partner program with this summer program at Stanford.

Stanford Law School accepts four LLM students for this summer program every summer, who do not have to pay any tuition for this summer program. Stanford Law School may accept additional LLM students under favorable conditions by reducing the summer program tuition substantially. All other expenses (flight, accommodation etc) must be covered directly by the individual LLM students. The review of all applications and selection will be done by the partner university.

Summer program participants, who successfully complete this summer program, will receive a Stanford Law School Certificate.

In the summer of 2018, seven LLM students enrolled and successfully completed the 2018 summer program.

This Stanford summer program is recognized as an elective course for the LLM Program in European and International Business Law, with a value of 3 units (6 ECTS).
