LLM Drafting in Intellectual Property and Information Technology | Professor Eckstein

This course will build on analytical and writing skills and will provide you with opportunities to sharpen your legal analysis through drafting various types of documents commonly used in IP/IT representation, which may include a cease and desist letter, work made for hire agreement, license agreement, on-line agreements such as privacy policy and terms of use, and legal memorandum. We will examine legal arguments, specific provisions and will study the conventions and expectations unique to each of the documents you write. Additionally, we will conduct legal research for the legal memorandum which will also influence the agreements you draft.  For various assignments you will negotiate with classmates who represent opposing interests and draft agreements reflecting your negotiations.
