John Marshall was one of only 10 law schools in the country to receive an A+ grade from the magazine. The grade was based on the law school’s curricular offerings in comparison to the offerings of the 131 other U.S. law schools that offer concentrations in intellectual property.
The law school “allows students to learn about IP law with an international approach. The school has partnered with IP lawyers in the People’s Republic of China for 20 years and offers a summer program in China focused exclusively on IP issues. The program goes to both Beijing and Shanghai,” the preLaw editors wrote about John Marshall.
“John Marshall is proud that its longstanding commitment to excellence in intellectual property education and global issues is again being recognized,” said John Marshall Law School Dean Darby Dickerson.
Earlier this year, U.S. News & World Report ranked John Marshall’s Intellectual Property Law Program 19th in the nation. It is one of only five law schools in the country to have a U.S. Patent and Trademark Office-Certified clinical program serving the entire United States.
“We are proud of our long and deep heritage in IP, but we do not rest on our laurels. Our IP program offers our students front-row access to the most important issues of the day and to IP leaders from the U.S. and around the world. With the steadfast support of the school and our partners, we strive not only to observe the IP world around us, but also to be a major player in it,” said Professor Daryl Lim, Director of the Center for Intellectual Property, Information & Privacy Law.
