Notre Dame’s MS in Patent Law (MSPL) prepares scientists and engineers to help inventors get patents.
The MSPL is a one-academic-year program, at Notre Dame’s campus in South Bend, IN. We prepare our students for practice as patent agents, through a curriculum of hands-on, practical learning. Candidates must be Patent Bar eligible, which means they have a science or engineering background.
If the MS in Patent Law is an option for you, make sure your completed application* is submitted by December 15, 2013! All students who submit complete applications by that date, and who then join the MSPL’s 2014-2015 cohort, will receive a $2000 discount on their tuition!
We are also excited to announce that we are expanding our offerings and our locations to better serve more students! Starting in the 2014-2015 academic year, Notre Dame will offer a Certificate in Patent Prosecution at our Chicago campus.
Notre Dame will continue to offer the MS in Patent Law at our campus in South Bend, IN.
Faculty from the Certificate and MS program will be available at both events, to talk with you about career options in patent law (have you ever heard of a patent agent?). Of course, food and beverages will be available at both events, too!
