Summer Programme


Students interested in Intellectual Property Law are encouraged to attend the 2015 Summer Law Programme’s intensive three-week program in London from July 20, 2015 – August 7, 2015.

The rigorous, intellectually rich curriculum is designed to take advantage of London’s unique location as both the historical birthplace of Anglo-American IP law and as a dynamic center of modern international IP practice.

The fully accredited programme offers five one-credit courses from which students can choose any three. All courses comply with the standards of the American Bar Association and the Association of American Law Schools.

We allow auditing courses (with the permission of the particular faculty member and with the written approval of the director) and welcome practitioners seeking continuing legal education credit.

Notre Dame housing is available in the University’s Conway Hall in the historic Royal Waterloo House. Located across the street from Waterloo Train Station, Conway Hall is a five-minute walk to the Thames and a twenty-minute walk to the Summer Law Programme classrooms in the Notre Dame London Center.

Last summer’s participants included five students from Notre Dame Law School, three from the University of Notre Dame Australia School of Law, two from the University of Minnesota Law School, one from the University of Baltimore School of Law, one from Loyola Law School, and one from the University of Dayton School of Law. We expect enrollment in our new Intellectual Property summer program to expand to include students from Europe in addition to students from Australia, China, and other Asian countries. We will be monitoring applications and updating this information as the year progresses.
