Intellectual Property Law Center

    The St. John's Intellectual Property Law Center is a forum for research, education, professional development and service addressing the legal and policy issues of the knowledge economy.  We focus on all the ways law and lawyers participate in shaping the information age, from intellectual property law to trade policy; from pharmaceuticals to publishing; from privacy rights to free expression principles; from Silicon Alley to Madison Avenue.  We invite you to learn more about us by reading more about our programs and initiatives.

    Intellectual Property

    St John's alumni are leaders in every area of intellectual property law practice and in technological and creative industries.

    Our graduates include general counsels at some of the world's most valuable and innovative high-tech companies, managing partners and heads of intellectual property practice at some of the country's top law firms, and practitioners and entrepreneurs in nearly every field of technological and creative endeavor. The St. John's Intellectual Property Law Center is a place where our alumni can come together to benefit from one another's experience and build connections with faculty and current St. John's students.  Here are some ways you can increase your involvement in our community.


    IPLC depends on the generosity of our successful alumni to recruit, support, and train the next generation of St. John's lawyers; to provide programming and networking opportunities; and to advance our research and advocacy work.

    IPLC depends on its Board of Advisors and Special Advisory Committees to maintain connections with the needs and interests of practicing professionals.  To learn how you can participate, please contact IPLC Director Jeremy Sheff.


    IPLC serves the needs of our stakeholders by organizing CLE and social events at which students, alumni, and faculty can meet, learn, and network. If you, your firm, or your company are interested in hosting or sponsoring a CLE or social event, please contact IPLC Director Jeremy Sheff.


    Our students are better prepared for success when they learn practical knowledge and skills from our alumni practicing in the field.  If you are interested in teaching a course as an adjunct professor, or speaking at a CLE event on a topic in your area of expertise, please contact IPLC Director Jeremy Sheff.
