Samuelson-Glushko Intellectual Property and Information Law Clinic       
THROUGH THE IP AND INFORMATION LAW Clinic, Fordham Law students are able to participate at the forefront of public interest litigation in both intellectual property and informational law.

Intellectual Property and Information Law is a very dynamic area of law, constantly changing with the times and introduction of new technologies.  The goal of the clinic is not only to provide legal services to people and organizations with limited resources, but also to find solutions to difficult issues that will make an impact on the legal world.

Clinic work includes contract negotiation and drafting, as well as litigation in New York State and Federal courts as either a party or as amicus curiae.

This clinic can help clients with copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, information law and privacy issues.  The clinic assists a wide range of clients, including musicians, performing artists, poets, non-profit organizations, small business, and others interested in protecting their creativity and personal information. People seeking assistance can contact the clinic by either sending an e-mail to or by calling (212) 636-6934.

Legal services are provided free of charge to those who meet certain income requirements and fall within the clinic's goal of serving the public interest.
