Both the augmentation of the internet and rise in digitization in recent years has caused an ever-expanding realm of debates regarding intellectual property and where the law stands.
Law schools all across the nation, in particular, are struggling to keep up with the changes-and Georgia State University College of Law is no different.
In fact, according to law professor Michael Landau, the school is geared toward really getting a place on the “global IP map.”
But how and what exactly does this mean?
The creation of the Center for Intellectual Property
Georgia State Law has created the “Center for Intellectual Property.” With a present-day curriculum that includes 18 different courses, Georgia State Law is already known for its expansive IP program and “reputation in the community,” according to GSU law professor, Steven J. Kaminshine.
However, Kaminshine indicates that the creation of the new center will essentially bolster the school’s already well-regarded program and “broaden [its] international footprint by really [putting] Georgia State Law on the global map.”
Among the plans
The plan is to bring in professors from all across the globe to lecture on various hot topics surrounding intellectual property law throughout the year. The law school will also introduce a speaker series in collaboration with the Center for Law, Health and Society.
