Prerequisites: RCC; Copyright, Patent & Trademark Law, LAW 658, recommended but not required. This course will cover the constitutional, statutory, and common law attributes of trademark law; the rights and remedies that trademark law provides for producers; the protection that trademark law provides for competitors and consumers; and the intersection of American trademark law with other forms of intellectual property protection, with the First Amendment, and with international law. Students are expected to master the substantive law of trademark, but the major goal of the course is to teach students how to use the law to advance their clients' interests in commercial symbols by requiring students to use their professional judgment in a counseling context.
