IU McKinney bolsters 3 legal concentration areas
The Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law has bolstered its focus on three specific areas of practice. The school is now offering a concentration in corporate and commercial law. In addition, certificates are offered in international and comparative law as well as for the concentration in intellectual property law.
The corporate and commercial law concentration focuses on giving students a basic grounding in a range of topics that are essential in business representations as well as helping them develop deeper expertise in one or more areas through advanced coursework, practical experience and independent research pursuits.
The certificate in intellectual property law is designed to enhance students’ education experiences and aid them in seeking employment in intellectual property and related areas. The certificate in international and comparative law will draw upon the expanded research and practice expertise of the faculty.•
