Program Overview

Program Description:
The Center for Transnational IP, Media and Technology Law and Policy of Bucerius Law School in Hamburg together with the UC Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco are very proud to announce the third Bucerius/UC Hastings Summer Program in International Intellectual Property Transactions. These two internationally renowned institutions have joined forces to offer an intensive three-week, English-taught program that allows upper division law students and young practitioners the opportunity to build practical skills for transacting technology licenses in a transnational context. In less than a month, program participants walk away with a thorough understanding of core IP and licensing concepts and industry practices as well as both the legal and business sides of licensing.

The theoretical concepts covered in coursework will be given a practical application through a licensing workshop. Student teams will negotiate a transnational technology license based on a real life fact pattern and develop the transaction's term sheet. Experienced practitioners supervise this skill-building exercise. The theoretical and practical components come together during two site visits to major German and European enterprises where participants examine the company's own international licensing experience and strategies.

Students with a background knowledge of or proven interest in IP law gain deeper insight into the field, learning from both practitioners and academics. The small but diverse student body and guest professors from around the globe ensure that the program itself is an exercise in internationality. In addition to taking courses, students are encouraged to take part in an extensive extracurricular program organized for them, including museum visits, city tours and much more.
