Program on Intellectual Property & Technology Law

Faculty Directors: Sean B. Seymore and Stephen Yelderman

The Program on Intellectual Property & Technology Law promotes research on a broad range of topics related to innovation, creativity, technology, and entrepreneurship.

Researchers affiliated with the program study the laws and policies that promote innovation and creativity to serve the common good; the relationship between innovation and creativity-related policies and other values like free speech, competition, and distributive justice; and the legal and ethical implications of existing and emerging technologies. Leveraging Notre Dame's locations throughout the world, the program funds research and facilitates conversation by organizing conferences and other events that bring together leading academics from a variety of disciplines, as well as judges, practicing lawyers, and other policy makers.
