Suffolk Law Intellectual Property Center
A Hub for Intellectual Property & Innovation
The Suffolk Law IP Center is a place for the IP community to gather, to learn, and to share big ideas. Through its programming and events, the IP Center strives to equip its students, faculty, alumni, and members of the IP community with the skills and knowledge-base that they need to succeed in a constantly changing IP environment.
The Center’s annual IP & Innovation Conference brings together a cross-section of the intellectual property community, including IP scholars, law firm practitioners, in-house counsel, and policy makers.
IP Programs at Suffolk Law
As one of the largest and most developed of its kind in the country, Suffolk Law’s IP concentration is regularly listed among the top 30% of IP programs in the country by US News & World Report and is comprised of a wealth of courses to address the richness of this diverse field of practice.
- Our six resident, tenure-track faculty write and teach in a wide range of IP subject matter
- In addition to our IP concentration and patent law specialization, we offer a cutting-edge IP and Entrepreneurship Clinic
- Recently, our clinic students have won complex IP cases against Monster Energy Drink and Nautica—with major media coverage of their victories
- With the most patent law alumni working in the largest IP practices in Massachusetts law firms—more than double the number for the next Boston area law school—our graduates are serving in-house at tech giants like Google, Dell, and IBM, and at major biotech/pharma companies including Pfizer, Moderna, and Novartis
