APPROXIMATELY 30 COURSES RELATING TO IPIL ARE OFFERED REGULARLY at the UH Law Center. All of these courses answer the degree requirements for the Doctor of Jurisprudence (J.D.) degree and most apply to the Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree.
The UH Law Center offers both full-time and part-time programs leading to the J.D. degree. J.D. candidates must complete 90 semester hours and can customize their curricula with intellectual property and information law courses that reflect their individual interests and concerns. Students interested in applying to the
D. program should contact the Office of Admissions for an application at
or email@example.com. Applications also can be accessed
The LL.M. Program provides an academic environment for practicing lawyers who wish to expand their knowledge of intellectual property and information law. Only a limited number of candidates are accepted for full-time or part-time studies, and admissions are highly competitive. Applicants from the United States must hold the J.D. degree or equivalent from a law school accredited by the American Bar Association and must possess promising research or practice credentials. Lawyers who hold law degrees from foreign countries must meet academic and English language standards for admission.
LL.M. candidates must complete 24 semester hours of approved courses with a cumulative grade-point average of at least 2.5. A thesis is optional, upon approval by an instructor. Class scheduling and availability vary from year to year. Most IPIL courses are offered in the fall and spring semesters. Generally,
IPIL courses are not available in the summer. Both full-time and part-time degree candidates are allowed a maximum of three years for in-classroom work and completion of the thesis. Thesis supervision occurs during the fall and spring semesters only. For details about the LL.M. program, contact the LL.M. Coordinator at 713.743.2080 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.law.uh.edu/llm. PROF. GREG R. VETTER.
