J.D. Concentration Intellectual Property Law Honors
Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University
Earliest start date
Students enrolled in the Intellectual Property Law Honors Concentration will receive instruction and training in those subject areas fundamental to the practice of intellectual property attorneys, in addition to instruction in specialized, related subject areas of their choosing.
Professors Akilah N. Folami, Leon Friedman, and Irina D. Manta serve as faculty concentration advisors for this Concentration. Concentration faculty advisors may modify the Concentration requirements in exceptional circumstances upon notice to the Dean.
Guidance from a student’s concentration faculty advisor is an important element of successful completion of the Concentration. A Concentration faculty advisor must approve a student’s enrollment in the Concentration. Students should meet with their advisor as soon as they find themselves interested in the Concentration, but in no event later than the course selection deadline for their fourth semester of study (or fifth semester of study for part-time students). An advisor may permit a student to enroll in the Concentration at a later date, but only after determining that the student can realistically meet the requirements of the Concentration prior to graduation.
