"I am extremely impressed that the faculty has extensive corporate and law firm experience in cutting edge intellectual property issues. There are also frequent guest lecturers who are practicing attorneys working in areas of rapid change, such as standards and cloud computing. This creates an atmosphere in which students are learning about and discussing the most current and relevant legal issues regarding intellectual property."
