Chicago-Kent and Loyola Intellectual Property Colloquium

Chicago-Kent College of Law and Loyola University Chicago School of Law jointly sponsor and host the Chicago Intellectual Property Colloquium. The Colloquium promotes discussion of a range of issues in intellectual property and cyberspace law.

Each year, during the Spring academic semester, Chicago-Kent and Loyola invite six nationally renowned intellectual property scholars to Chicago  to present and discuss their current research projects before intellectual property faculty from Chicago-area law schools, prominent intellectual property practitioners, and selected students from Chicago-Kent and Loyola (“Chicago IP Colloquium Fellows“).

These presentations usually take place on every second Tuesday during the Spring semester from 4:10 p.m. to 5:50 p.m., with the location alternating between Chicago-Kent and Loyola.

If you are a student at Chicago-Kent or Loyola who is interested in participating in the Colloquium, please click here.  Student Fellows meet with Colloquium Faculty from Chicago-Kent and Loyola one week before each presentation to discuss the draft paper that the invited scholar will present.  To read more about the Colloquium Faculty from Chicago-Kent and Loyola, please click here.
